 August 6, 2010, 12:37 Wall boundary condition (a very simple question) #1 New Member   Safa van Jansen Join Date: Aug 2010 Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 Dear all, I am a beginner in FLUENT and my apology for this simple question. I would appreciate your explanation. I am using FLUENT in order to simulate natural convection in a room. All my boundary conditions are specified as wall. In pre-processing I assigned different uniform temperatures to all wall surfaces. But after the simulation is finished, when I check the surface temperature of the walls, I do not have uniform temperatures at the walls that I assigned. Shouldn't the wall boundary conditions remain fixed and unchanged during the CFD iterations? Why do the uniform wall surface temperature before the simulation change to non-uniform wall surface temperature after the simulation? Thanks a lot for your explanation, Safa van Jansen

The other is that you displayed cell value for the temperature, which is actually the value in the cell adjacent to the wall. To display the wall temperature, use Wall Temperature(Outer Surface) under Contours of pulldown list.
