I would like to know if we can define non constant properties in OF and how to do it Thanks in advance Kyian

In my case i have 2 solids where Cp and k (thermal conductivity) are both a function depending on temperature. I would like to define this function in the thermal properties dictionnary. but i dont know how to do it, or if it's possible. I search in the forum any threats but i didnt find one. I started OpenFOAM a few weeks ago so maybe my research was wrong. Thanks in advance Kyian

In my case, the solid and fluid properties (Cp and the thermal coefficient K) are not constant but depend on the temperature. In fact, cp and K are both a linear function depends on temperature. I would like to know if it's possible to enter this equation and how to do it. I hope it's clearer this time
