Dear all,

I have some doubt regarding the setting the boundary conditions in case of conjugate heat transfer.
Let me brief the physics involved : 1 internal fluid (fluid1) with inlet and outlet, 2 solid layers(solid1, solid2) surrounding fluid1 in layered manner, fluid2 surrounding solid2 with inlet and outlet, solid3 surrounding fluid2, fluid2 again surrounding solid3.

So now, in this case, what should be the boundary conditions at the interface of, i. e. interface between fluid1 - solid1, solid1 - solid2, solid2 - fluid2, fluid2 - solid3, solid3 - fluid2.

Considering I want the conduction in solids too.... should interfaces need to be consider as 'internal' or 'wall' boundary condition ? and how to patch those interface ?

An internal boundary condition you have only between two fluids zones or two solid zones. You need a coupled wall boundary, so that you have a wall connected to the fluid zone and a wall-shadow connected to the solid zone. In this case you have a heat flow form solid and fluid and vice versa.
