 December 10, 2008, 11:06 Re: heat transfer modeling #4 map Guest   Posts: n/a hi there, i go through tutorial and i set up this problem as discribe below. - there are two domain one is for fluid 1 say water which is flow through pipe and other is for fluid 2 say air, which is flow outside of pipe. - in boundary condition there are water inlet(velocity and temp of water is specified), water outlet(outflow), air inlet(velocity and temp), air outlet(outflow), and wall(shell conduction with 2mm thickness of wall, coupled) but i didnt get satisfactary result i.e. as i seen from result file heat is not transfer from water to air through pipe wall and temperature of air remains same through out the domain. please help me..
