Hi All,

I am using FLUENT to simulate temperature distribution inside water-cooled copper coils/tubes. The original/assembly has 7 IDENTICAL coils (attached) that are equally spaced out in 360 deg i.e I have 7 coils that don't touch each other but and have the same heat load and water flow conditions.

I have made a simulation in fluent studying the temp distribution in ONLY one of the coil. Can I somehow copy/pattern/duplicate the results to apply on the remaining 6 coils. I have read about using cyclic pattern but they seem to apply where the bodies are connected i.e like a wheel.

The goal here is to export this data to steady state thermal and link it with other bodies and then move to structural simulation to study thermal expansion/stress .....and on and on. I have done this part for a single coil (please see attached).

So, I guess the results don't necessarily have to be duplicated in fluent itself, maybe I can duplicate them in steady state thermal?

Appreciate the help!
