How to adjust wall temperature
Dear all

My problem is how to adjust the temperature of wall surface due to the heat flux which transfers from gaseous phase through the wall in each time step. If the wall is solid such cement, brick etc., heat that transfer through the wall can increase wall surface temperature.

I also know that fluent calculates heat flux through the wall by using this equation

q = hf(Tw - Tf) + qrad

but fluent just handle the problem in case of constant temp, constant heat flux as I input in the boundary condition.

So my problem is how to adjust solid wall temperature due to heat transfer at each time step.

I need your help so much.
Best Regard
Thanks for your advance.
