Dear Foamers,

i tried for long time to simulate a case of graetz flow.

it simply flow inside circular tube with fixed temperature at external wall different from flow temp. there is also a problem with velocity distribution of flow and temp. distribution.

solver is chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam.

case is attached in this link.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/yae8qs1s2xp1069/graetz.tar.gz

thanks in advance.

Please provide more information, including an image snapshot, detailing the problem, otherwise it's unlikely that anyone will look at your case.

By the way, proof of the expected solution would also be helpful, so that you can prove that there is a problem with the solution you are getting!

Best regards,
Bruno
