Hi,

I was wondering if you could do a transient flow simulation, switch to steady-state, "freeze" the flow and just run a thermal calculation based on the flow field?

Regards, PAD

I believe you can by turning off the "flow" equations (Solve->Controls->Solution and select the equations you don't want to change).

Hope this helps, and good luck, Jason
