Hi, everybody, my model is 2D axis-symmetry.
In my model, a boundary(wall) is cooled by a heat flux (W/m2).
My question is should I do any extra setting because of the axis-symmetry ?

Thank you !

Hi ypchen

I'm newbie here but

when you select 'axis' as a boundary condition,

"To determine the appropriate physical value for a particular variable at a point

on the axis, Fluent uses the cell value in the adjacent cell"

So I guess it will be okay
