Static temperature
Hi all,

I am a new cfd users, could anyone tell me what's the different between static temperature and total temperature, secondly, how could i obtain the nusselt number from the results, do i need to write UDF ?

Thank all.

Re: Static temperature
The fluid at stationary assumes the absolute temperature. When the fluid starts moving with a velocity, part of its energy is converted to K.E and the actual fluid temperature reduces. This temperature is called static temperature.
