Good Afternoon

I want to model a boundary condition described by a formula of the type:

q'' = R(T-Tinf)
Where R and Tinf are constants.

Is there any way to this without using groovyBC?

I have this example from a textbook where the following BC for a similar scenario is applied:

    type heatTransfer;
    h   40;
    k 120;
    Tfluid  293;
    value uniform 293;
However this BC does not seem to work with OF2.3 ( the textbook is for OF2.1)

Best Regards
