Urgent: Tutorial about mixed convection
I am a new user of the commercial code ANSYS Fluent and I want to simulate a mixed convection in channel with one wavy wall. I need a tutorial to know how to run this simulation in FLUENT. it's very urgent.

I also need this tutorial, if anyone can help me for my thesis.
Thank you in advance.

I would recommend you just look at one of the tutorials for forced convection heat transfer as a start.

Adding the natural convective behavior is only a matter of (1) ensuring you have variable density for the fluid phase and (2) adding gravity to your simulation.

Having temperature-dependent variable density with a gravity vector imposed will induce natural convective motion in the fluid phase and thus you will have mixed convection heat transfer.

If you have solution problems, just carefully review the Fluent users manual with respect to modeling and solver recommendations for natural convection.
