Help needed its urgent...

I have to simulate transfer of energy from Fluid to Solid and vice versa.

> I have created seperate meshes for solid and fluid (both .cas as well as .msh).

> I have made seperate boundaries where Interfaces have to be created between solid and fluid. I have created interfaces between solid and water contact.

> I have defined 2 Materials Al and Water and assigned them to Solid and Fluid Volumes.

> I have given initial conditions for water velocity, static temp etc..

> When I initialize the solver warns me that 'adjacent boundaries have different materials.'

Please suggest me if I had made mistake in meshing/Modelling Physics etc...

Hi - you need to run a "coupled" solution in the thermal boundary condition panel for each interface.
