Default estimating the heat transfer coefficient
Posts: n/a

I am estimating the heat transfer coefficient for a simple pipe flow which is subjected to constant heat flux. i would like to estiamte the Heat transfer coefficient (HTC) based on mean temperature inside the pipe. As Mean temperature varies along the length. it is difficult to change the reference value inside the report->reference values in FLUENT panel which is always a constant. Is there any UDF to estimate the HTC with mean temperature.
