Hello guys,

I am doing the simulation about the solidification of water in a Al mould, but unfortunately I do not know how to display the temperature distribution on the Al mould.

Besides, if I set the heat transfer to fluid 1 as "-1",will the software calculate the heat transfer coefficient via correlations?

Please do me a favor.

Thanks all.

This will only work if the fluid to solid heat transfer option is set to full energy equation.

For 2D plots: Analyze->2D->Contour variable = wall temperature
For 3D plots: Analyze->3D->Iso-surface = complement of volume fraction, color variable = wall temperature
