Heat transfer coefficient in CFX code
Does any one know how to calculate the overall (not local) heat transfer coefficient (or Nusselt number) in CFX code?

Re: Heat transfer coefficient in CFX code
Easiest way would be areaAve(Heat Transfer Coefficient)@<boundary>. It will give you an area weighted average of the variable

aveage nusselt number monitoring as a function of time

I wrote a code that gives average nusselt number in steady state as a scalar number for a cylinder in cross flow with Induced Vibrations
local nusselt nuL= (Wall Heat Flux *shoa*2[m])/(75 [K]*Thermal Conductivity ) that 75 is Temperature difference average nusselt number nuave=areaAve(nuL)@Pipe1 I think it works for you but I need a way that plot average nusselt number as a function of time like the follow picture Please somebody help me 
Send your variable nuave to a monitor point, then you can see it as the transient simulation progresses on solver manager.

I did exact the same thing, but it gives this error in follow picture. please help me
I have another question. Is shown in the photo. Instead of (2 * shoa) D1 or D2 should I use?

this pic is better

Looks like the areaAve function can only take CFX variables, not your CEL expression. In that case just do the averaging in the nuL equation.

What do you mean? Please tell me the exact code
also D1 or D2?

Replace nuL= (Wall Heat Flux *shoa*2[m])/(75 [K]*Thermal Conductivity )
with nuL = areaAve(Wall Heat Flux)@Wall * shoa ..... * areaAve(k)@Wall 
Thank you very very very much. Error is cleared :eek::eek::eek::D:D:D

What do you think about D1 or D2؟؟؟

If you are trying to match a publish result then they should define how they calculated Nu. There is no general rule, you can define it anyway which makes sense to that application.
