Hello Pedram,

maybe you could try compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed, even though I am not sure if I understood well your case. Could you post your geometry or some sketch of it?


Web site where I present my Master's Thesis:

The case I talk about in this site was solved with chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam solver and involves radiation. Some basic tutorials are also resolved step by step in the web. If you are interested in these matters, you are invited to come in!
