why the average Nusselt number is less than 1 when the plate is partially heating???
 
Hi,
i am using Fluent 6.3: when the plate or wall is heating partially,the average nusselt number value was less than 1 (case of simualtion of the natural convection between a solid wall and a fluid)!!!!
can we compute it through a custom function???if yes give me some help please
all the best ;)
