I am new to using OpenFOAM and I need to solve a simple steady state incompressible flow with conductive heat transfer. I am unsure which solver application to use.

As far as I can see icoFoam is a transient solver for incompressible flow, but it does not address conductive heat transfer.

Will I have to write a new solver, or am I just missing something simple?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

Hi Johan,

have a look at buoyantSimpleFoam:
"Steady-state solver for buoyant, turbulent flow of compressible fluids for ventilation and heat-transfer".
That code works in the incompressible limit as well

regards
Markus
