myaccount is on a distinguished road
I am studying the heat transfer rate within an isothermal medium which is not moving(still) and it s at temp T1. The medium is confined within two large black isothermal walls of temp T2.
If we have to specify a wall as isothermAL, we can just give the value of the temperature in boundary conditions>>edit>>thermal >>thermal conditions>>temperature....

Am i right??

And if we want to specify a medium (fluid /solid) as isothermal, how to give a specified temperature for that? Because in boundary conditions panel, for solid or fluid, we can only edit the name and nothing else.. pls tell me how to specify a still medium as isothermal... ?? Do we have to specify it in reference values section ?? or do we have to give it under cell zone conditions>>edit>>Fixed values>>Temperature ???

I tried it with fixed value once an as i am wrking in radiation heat transfer problems, i dont think I am right..

Someone pls suggest me the right way pls..
