I'm trying to simulate a heat transfer envolving air flow through a compressor's muffler.
I'm imposing constant pressure BC in the inlet and a time varying temperature and pressure in the outlet. Which solver should I use? How can I consider the properties of the walls, if I want to simulate heat conduction?

Thank you.

Take a look at chtMultiRegionFoam and the related tutorial.
