Enhanced Wall Treatment - Thermal Effects
Hi, I'm using Fluent 6.1 with EWT, but I'm not entirely sure what the two options (thermal effects and pressure gradients) do. From the manual, it seems that it sensitises the enhanced wall function to heat transfer effects and pressure gradients, but I'm slightly confused: Does this mean that I only need to turn on thermal effects if I expect large heat transfer to/from the boundary layer, or will I need this option to get accurate heat transfer predictions?

Thanks, Brian
