Hi everyone!
I am an engineering student a I have this assignment:
"A cylinder (D: diameter) is quenched by immersing it in oil.
Evaluate the temperature's trend in function of time at the centerline.
Compare this temperature and the temperature obtained with a calculation with the method of lumped capacities and indicate in which condition (Bi) the maximum difference is less than x%."
First of all... Is it possible to do this analysis with OpenFoam?
If the answer is yes, and I hope so, do you know some tutorials that I can use as a guideline?
And last question... Do you have some advice? Something to be aware of?

Thanks to everyone!
