 March 12, 2014, 03:39 Heat Transfer Problem in FLUENT #1 New Member   Yasser Join Date: Mar 2014 Posts: 7 Rep Power: 12 Hello every body, I am working in a heat transfer problem using ANSYS-FLUENT In my model, there are two stationary concentric cylinders. There is a gap between these two cylinders filled with a gas (not air). The boundary conditions are: - There is "Heat generated" in the inner cylinder = 29602 (W/m3) - The ambient temperature is 29 (C) [it should be also a convection heat transfer coeffiecient but i can not get it (is unknown)] That is all. My problem is a 2-D heat transfer problem. I make a mesh file using ICEM CFD making a boundary condition in the outer surface of the inner cylinder, inner and outer surface of the outer cylinder as Wall. In FLUENT i applied the Heat source boundary condition in the inner cylinder and FLUENT by defult make the walls (inner of outer cylinder and outer of the inner cylinder) as coupled and i apply the temperature of the outer wall, but after i make these, the problem not converged. Is the meaning of the "Coupled", that the heat transfer from solid to fluid is by convection and radiation or not? Can any one help Pls??

I am not understanding the real meaning of the "Coupled" term. Thanks
