Hi everbody,

iam a student working on my masterthesis and iam new to OpenFOAM. I want to simulate a heat exchanger with porous media. For the beginning I ran the tutorial heat exchanger without any modifications. I supposed it worked very well, but the region "air" didnīt warm up. It has still the start temperature of 300K.
Iam using openFOAM 2.2.1.
Did someone else try to run this tutorial? And what are the results?

Thanks in advance.

Check the initial boundary conditions for air in the standard tutorial. Check the velocity and temperature for air in "0" folder.
