I am trying to learn the CFX capability for performing multiphase (air + water) analysis. When I get results, I get two heat transfer coefficients viz "Air. Heat Transfer Coefficient" and "Water. Heat Transfer Coefficient". How do I interpret the results to find the effective heat transfer coefficient?

This is all discussed in the documentation, see under solver modelling/multiphase/boundary conditions/wall boundaries

Dear Mr. Horrocks,

Thanks a lot. I could get the documentation. When I run some of the cases (flow inside the pipe) I get the following message. Can you indicate the type and extent of inaccuracy in analysis due to the same?

****** Notice ******
A wall has been placed at portion(s) of an OUTLET
boundary condition (at 1.4% of the faces, 2.4% of the area)
to prevent fluid from flowing into the domain.
The boundary condition name is: Outlet.
The fluid name is: Air at 25 C.
If this situation persists, consider switching
to an Opening type boundary condition instead.

With best regards,
Dev325

Change your Outlet BC into an Open BC and use hydrostatic pressure through CEL.

I would go through the posts more carefully and thoroughly.
Thanks.

This is one approach and there are many others. Sometimes this approach is not a good choice - but again this issue has been discussed thousands of times so search the forum for a complete discussion.
