Default temperature initialization
Posts: n/a
hi all,

I am doing a transient convective heat transfer analysis in fluent. its a 3D grid for flow over a plate with hot air passing over the plate surface.

how do i give the initial temperature of the plate as an input to fluent before iterating?

In the BC panel, change the thermal condition from Heat flux to "temperature" and specify it.

but none of my plate surfaces will stay at a constant temperature. its a transient analysis.
