Conjugate heat transfer problem in 3D
hi all

I am solving 3D Conjugate heat transfer problem.... but when I export mesh file into fluent.....coupled boundary condition is not there in "define boundary condition" panel.. can I do somethng in fluent to assign coupled BC or I have to edit the geometry in gambit itself.... can anyone tell me how to make geometry so that coupled BC would appear in fluent.....

Thanks Tanveer

Re: Conjugate heat transfer problem in 3D
Generally it should appear if the two domains share the same face. I guess you have non-conformal mesh and the domains do not share any geometric entity.

(i) define the two domains (solid and fluid) in gambit itself. (ii) define interface (solid-fluid). Go to Fluent -> Define -> Grid Interface -> select appropriate surfaces and apply. (Switch on the coupled option there).
