im trying to model patient room using fluent. I defined patients as wall with constant temp. I got cosntanat temp. distribution in the interriors (equal to inlet air temperature) except very near the boundry of walls and patients.

IS it right ????
Is the air turbulent inside the room ?

There is an unsufficient amount of informations about this project...

The purpose, BC, solver type - steady or time-depended...

If you have an open room (open window, air conditioning), there will be a forced convection (according to the velocity of air), and the heat transfer will be hardly to notice (depend of conditions of air flux).

If closed room with still air, there should be a natural convection i.e. warm air goes up, cold fall.

I would not expected miracles from this type of problem... If we have a surrounding air temperature near 27C and couple of people with 36C...
There is only 9C disparity.
