CFX Heat Transfer
 
Hello All,

I'm running a CFX Multifield simulation of flow over an airfoil that includes heat transfer modes. I do have a couple of questions...

-What's the difference between "Heat Flux" and "Wall Heat Flux"?

-Does either "Heat Flux" or "Wall Heat Flux" include all modes of heat transfer, i.e. convection, conduction, radiation? In other words, is either of these the total heat flux?

-Is a positive heat flux in or out of the body? Is it the same for "Wall Radiative Heat Flux" "Wall Heat Flux", etc...?

Thanks!

Jamison
