Heat transfer field
Hello Foamers !

I would like to know how to plot the heat transfer field of a LES case, with Paraview, for a case using BuoyantPisoFoam solver.

Heat transfer must follow Fourier's Law : qy = -k * dT/dy

I don't even know how to have access to k, when I only have alphasgs (which does not seem to be the diffusivity, units are not good), B, musgs, p, T, U and k (kinetic energy, not heat transfer k), in my /0 folder.

It can seem strange but I did not find the answer after several searches :(

Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated !
