wall heat transfer
 
Good Morning at all,
I want to know if in OpenFoam is it possible to set a wall heat transfer boundery condition.
My case is listed below:
_ U=500 W/(m2 k)
_ Text=577K
I want that OpenFOAM solve:
k (dt/dx) =U (text-T)
Have OpenFoam a boundery condition to do that????
Thanks all for attention

you can use either the turbulentHeatFlux boundary condition or just a fixedGradient boundary condition where you set your temperature gradient based on

Code:

dT/dx = U/k * (text-T)
more complicated boundary conditions can be set with groovyBC, where you then can also set temperature gradients based on different values from within you domain or something like that.

I have just set the fixed gradient condition,
thank you very much
