Default heat transfer modelling of reciprocatingcompressor

I am doing a project on heat transfer analysis of reciprocating compressors. I have gone through help documentation of fluent but its complicated to understand is their any way else to learn.

Further I have studied the in cylinder model and dynamic mesh model for moving piston. can u tell me how to model heat transfer and what boundary conditions should i use like do i have to use inlet pressure and outlet pressure and as I am doing steady state analysis should i take wall as adiabatic or with some temperature, I want to see how the temperature variation occurs in one cycle and how it gets steady.

please help me.

Today, I find your post on the about heat transfer modeling of the reciprocating compressor.
Recently,I also struggling on such issue.I want to modeling the transient heat transfer betweem the inner gas,the solid(cylinder) and the outside cooling air.
This model concerns the dynamic mesh and conjugate heat transfer problems.
Now I plan to solve this model use Fluent, but I wonder if Fluent can solve such problems.
can you give me some advice or tutorials?
thanks in advanvce !
