Hi,

I am trying to input the solid material properties in the Setup phase of ANSYS Fluent. Is there anyway to input the axial and radial thermal conductivities instead of the 'total'? (see attached image)

Thank you

Click the dropdown button which currently says constant and choose the anisotropic option. You can deal with inputting the tensor or you probably want the orthotropic approach and specify the two orthogonal vectors for radial and axial directions. There is even a cylindrical option if your case has been setup for cylindrical coordinates.
