Heat transfer of liquids in a pipe
 
Hi,

Im trying to set my thermophysical properties for a liquid flow in a pipe with heat transfer. At first it can be incompressible and the flow laminar. (simpliest case just to learn).

I did this simulation using buoyantSimpleFoam for gas (the default air properties of tutorials) using :

thermoType hPsiThermo<pureMixture<constTransport<specieThermo <hConstThermo<perfectGas>>>>>;


It works well...

Which thermoType should I use ?
Maybe should I use BuoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam instead buoyantSimpleFoam?

Thanks for the attention guys

for laminar incompressible flow you can you can add:
scalarTransportFoam to icoFoam and compile it!

or use

buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam or buoyantBoussinesqPisoFoam

Thanks for the answer guy,

Its a laminar , imcompressible flow with heat tranfer, so I would use
boussinesqSimple.
