- - **UDF for modelling heat loss in 2D**
(*http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/fluent-udf/77268-udf-modelling-heat-loss-2d.html*)

UDF for modelling heat loss in 2DHI. I need help on how to construct a UDF, which can account for heat loss in a 2D channel. Thus effectively it will model 3D results from the 2D.

This code will work better at solid meshed surface, but if u wish to use if fluid region you have to consider convective and transient energy terms too.
"Ts2" will give insulated body temperature, if u don't have insulation you can use directly "Ts" to calculate Gr number and using that u can relate with heat transfer coefficients. |
