CFT123 is on a distinguished road
Dear all,

I am trying to model several buildings with conduction, convection and radiation (solar calculator). I find that I have no problem simulating convection and radiation. However when I introduce conduction into the simulation. temperatures on the building surface continue to rise throughout the day into the night. Anybody have any ideas ? what I am doing wrong? Ive tried everything include changing mesh, radiation model, turbulence model, time step....

any help is much appreciated
