Default Conjugate Heat Transfer query
Posts: n/a

I'm wanting to know the temperature soak performance of a solid body which is surrounded by a fluid.

If I use the Conjugate Heat Transfer feature in CFX will that tell me anything about the temperature in the solid body - I would expect it does not and I'd need to use the Fluid-Structure Interaction.

Is CHT just about using a solid as a source or sink for heat energy whereby only the behaviour of the fluid is to be understood?

If you want to observe the shrinkage of solid body due to thermal shock , then it is not possible in CFX. Other wise You can always obtain temerature profiles on solid fluid interections.
