Hi
It is easy to define the temperature variation vs a distance by using a function in CFX-Pre.

Temperature Profile

Dear Abou Ali,
Thank you very much, but my problem is that the wall is rounded and not straight, have you any document to send me please ?

Hi,
If you need documentation about CFX-Pre Function you can find it in the CFX Help. You can see also tutorial 19 Air Conditioning Simulation (CFX 13).

5- In the Result Units box type [K]
6- Set Option to One Dimensional
7- In the Coordinate box type x1
8- In the Value box type T1
10- Repeat steps 7 to 9 to add x2,T2 and x3,T3.
11-Click OK
*****************
From the main menu, select Insert > Expressions, Functions and Variables >
