Creating a new solver from chtMultiRegionFoam
Hi to all

I have been working with openFoam with different solvers, but I don' have experience as a programmer. Now, I need to solve a conjugate heat problem, for a heat exchanger with dinamics devices inside. I want to solve temperature filed both in fluid and solid regions, but in steady state and incompressible fluid. I want to create a new solver, similar to chtMultiRegionFoam but using the bouyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam solver for fluid region and also a SIMPLE algorithm for solid region (for steady state).

I will be glad if anyone could explain to me how to start to do that, if it is possible. Im a bit lost.

Thankyou very much for your attention
