hi everybody,,,,,
i have created a new solid material in cfx that will go under heat transfer from 100 degree C tp 920 degree C. but im confused in some of the properties of the materials.
1) how to set the reference temperature and reference specific enthalpy and reference specific entropy... i highlighted it in the snapshot of the printscreen that i have attached as pic 1 ,,,

Second problem is in chosing the right material type that i have highlighted in attached pic 2. please guide me,,,,,

If your temperature range is from 100C-920C then you can use 100C as a reference temperature. The simulation is rarely sensitive to this value so you can use what ever you like in it most of the time.

The other question is just defining what grouping it is in so it appears in the right menus.
