Hello everyone

I have recently start to use openFoam for CFD simulation and i think it's a really great software. I started to simulate a heat exchanger for a water coolant which cools heat generated components. Steady state is sufficient for my simulations and i have solved the water flow with simpleFoam, but how do i couple this with heat conduction through my water flow to the heat source? Further incompressible solver is always enough.
