ya..i have go through it..it says..
If the mesh file does not already contain overlapping heat exchanger cores for primary and auxiliary fluids, then you must create a duplicate of the zone that represents the core using the following text command:
mesh → modify-zones → copy-move-cell-zone

and when i try it at fluent...

>mesh → modify-zones → copy-move-cell-zone
modify-zones/: Enter the modify zones menu.
?: Enable help mode. Type "q" to return to command mode
invalid command [copy-move-cell-zone]

/mesh> 3
invalid command [3]

>
.......................
3 is the ID of the zone


i dont know how should i respond it... i keep on trying..but my command being invalid...
how should i respond back??

thank you..but due to time limitation..i just drop on using heat exchanger model. i used interface couple method.. it was succeed... but im not sure what i did is correct...

coupled solver
time step time-5s
number of time step-28

the length of the shell is 70cm & velocity 0.5cm/s
the length of tube-580cm - velocity 5cm/s

i just did small calculation as the fluid in shell need atleast 140s to out of it & the fluid in tube needed 116s to out...thats how i come up with the time step time and the no. of it... 5s*28=140s...
is it correct...??
