Default Heat Transfer Coefficient CFD to FEA mapping
Posts: n/a
Can someone explain what is the fundamental principle in mapping the local heat transfer coefficient on walls from CFD mesh to FEA mesh.

How does it work ? Is it reliable?

Many commercial CFD codes have this option of mapping local HTC to an FEA mesh for thermal analysis.

I do not understand the principle behind it. Thank you.
