Hi,

If i wanted to simulate heat transfer in a smooth channel and used symmetry boundary condition to simulate the flow in one half of the channel.
Do i have to double the velocity to get the same reynolds number as in the original channel, or i have to let the velocity equals to the velocity in the original channel.

Thank you.
