about properties of domain
 
High,
i am new to this forum. actually i am trying to use openfvm to simulate heat transfer phenomenon in attic design. I didnt find openfvm fourm here. SO i am posting this one in open foam forum thinking these are quite related.
i am using google sketchup khamsin plugin to create geometry mesh and to define the thermal properties of fluid but i couldnot incorporate thermal properties of domain i e roof or wall . i believe the thermal properties of domain has big role in the heat transfer mechanism through it.
If anybody has got any idea ,please help me.

I'm afraid OpenFOAM and OpenFVM are in no way related (except for 6 letters in the name and being FVM-CFD-codes). There seems to be a forum for OpenFVM at https://sourceforge.net/projects/openfvm/forums . If you stick around here too long people will try to convert you ("Come to the dark side of the force (=OpenFOAM), Luke. It has conjugate heat transfer")
