Evil Teyen is on a distinguished road
I have the following geometry:
6 ducts running along a wall in two sections, one (the leaf-shaped bit) hotter than the other. I need to model conduction from the hot surface through the duct walls and then convection inside the ducts, each of which has ten sub-channels. Any idea how I'd go about setting this up in FLUENT? Regardeless of which options I tick I keep getting wall temperatures equivalent to the surface of the sun :|
