Hello everyone, I hope you all doing well.

I am working on a 3-D case to model heat transfer. In my case all the wall are subject to constant wall temperature at 1200c and only one wall is insulated. What type of thermal boundary condition I need to set up for that insulated wall?
Your help is appreciated.
Regards
Oula

LuckyTran will become famous soon enough
A thermally insulated wall is an adiabatic wall.

Thank you LuckyTran for your reply. In a tutorial released by ANSYS 15, particularly in chapter 7. A mixed convection was set up on insulated walls. Is it because the case assuming the wall subject to radiative and convective H.T.?
chapter 7: Modeling radiation and natural convection
Thank you
