 September 20, 2007, 08:49 A simple model of convection #1 Renato Pacheco Guest   Posts: n/a I have a rectangle already draw and meshed with Gambit, and i need to set an initial temperature on the left side, i need to say that the up and de down edge are adyabatic. So how can I do this. Im new on Fluent.

Specify the surface to be a "wall" and within that specifications, select Thermal Condition = Heat Flux, and assign a value of zero as the heat flux. Zero Heat Flux = Adiabatic Wall.

(Also, can select edge and specify as wall boundary with wall temp = 300+273 K
