I am currently using and modifying the wallHeatFlux utility in order to calculate other values, that are calculated from the heat flux. However, I am not quite sure how the utility calculates the heat flux... to be specific, I don't quite get this part:
surfaceScalarField heatFlux ( fvc::interpolate ( ( turbulence.valid() ? turbulence->alphaEff()() : thermo->alpha() ) )*fvc::snGrad(h) );
I am using OpenFOAM 2.2.x
I would really appreciate it, if someone could assist me with this by pointing out which equation is being used here to calculate q.
Thanks in advance.
