Hi all !

I have a problem in posing a fixed temperature (Dirichlet boundary condition) on the No Slip Wall (Wall boundary type).
In CFX-Solver Modeling Guide in section " Fixed Temperature" is said about heat flux (not constant temperature) and a reference to CFX-Solver Theory Guide is given.
In CFX-Solver Theory Guide (Release 11.0) I find : "Static Temperature is specified at the wall boundary" BUT I can not find where should I specify this temperature (please, see attached file).

Is it possible to pose a 1st type boundary condition on a wall in CFX?
if yes, than
Please explain me the steps I have to follow in order to pose a 1 type boundary condition on a No Slip Wall (Wall boundary type).

Thank you in advance!

Under the tab boundary details, you can specify the fixed temnperature. You may first have to go to your domain and choose the thermal energy model, not isothermal.
