???????simulate heat distribution in an incompressibe laminar steady state flow??????
 
Hi,
I want to simulate heat distribution in an incompressibe laminar steady state flow. I thinke, I should add energy equation to simpleFoam. is there other solver or other way to do this as esear than adding energy equation to simpleFoam ?
thanks

Take a look at the heat transfer tutorials. BuoyantSimpleFoam adds the energy equation to simpleFoam - and the hotRoom tutorial models laminar convective heat transfer (surface to air). Also look through the other heat transfer solvers and tutorials to see if there is a better fit for your model.
