Normally, if you do that, when you import your case in Fluent6, you should have two zones and a "shadow" wall between these two zone. Good luck

THX for your help!

One for the "real" live and one for the zone corresponding to the conducting wall. You just have to change this second zone properties in order that it becomes solid. If you have not the two zones this is not normal. In Fluent4, when you change the conducting wall cells to live you should define as wall the cells at the interface between the live and the conducting wall. Good luck
