alphaHeatTransfer
 
Hi OFoamers!
I'm working with OF- fireFoam on a fire plume in a tunnel.
In 0/T file I set at walls "alphaHeatTransfer" to take account of the heat transfer from hot gases/air and ceiling/walls. I don't know how this option works.
After calculating T field, does firefoam calculate the wall thermal flux loss and after it iter to seek the new T value?
thanks,
jim
