I'm simulating dual-fuel engine. How can I get the wall heat transfer output file?
In Output file, there is heat transfer output which is ''no output'' by default.

What does it mean ''General local heat transfer data'' or '' General custom heat transfer data''?

In CONVERGE Studio under the Output files section, you can turn on Heat transfer output e.g. write transfer.out file with wall heat transfer data for each cell adjacent to a wall boundary at output frequency twrite_transfer. The use of a (Generate custom heat transfer data) file will allow you to restrict output to specific boundaries and include some additional output (see the manual for details).
