Hi,


Can anyone advise me how to calculate local heat transfer coefficient in OpenFoam and then display it in ParaView? I am able to calculate wallheatflux and the wall temperature. I would like to use the local temperature of the flow for the heat transfer coefficient calculation, but I do not know how to do it.


Thanks
Atlan

It is perfectly explained here, at the end of this TFD Chalmers tutorial:

Once NusseltCalc is execute, a new field is created and you can visualize the results in paraview:

Pd; For next time, try google first (is faster).
