 January 23, 2004, 12:57 Thermal B.C at walls #1 Riham Guest   Posts: n/a Hi everyone, There is 5 options in thermal B.C at walls, do I have to choose only one of them or can I choose more than one if I know all the parameters? In case I choose only one, say heat flux, does fluent take into consideration the default value, for the specified temperature for example, in the calculation? Thank you so much.

To set both would be to overconstrain the equations. If you set the heat flux the code should calculate the temperature and visa versa. For example, if you set the heat flux and the local velocity increases then the temperature at the wall may well drop due to increased convection. Hope some of this helps
