Wall Heat Transfer Plot
 
Hi everyone,

I need to create a contour plot of the "Wall Heat Transfer Co-efficient" (manually calculated as h = q/(Tw-Tref)). The reference temperature is the temperature at a distance away from the wall.

Is there a way of writing a CEL Expression which will evaluate h with the reference temperature taken from the offset location? The "probe" function allows you to use the Temperature from a particular point, but would only give me one value of Tref for the entire surface, so is not suitable.

Any help would be much appreciated

Cheers

Paul
