Hello Everyone,

I am trying to solve a thermo-fluids problem with an internal fluid field heating up a thin film top wall that is cooled externally. So far I have been successfully using buoyantPimpleFoam for the convective & radiative heat transfer inside the domain and a top boundary condition of externalWallHeatFluxTemperature to model the outside cooling. However this does not take into account the thin film material properties at the top of the domain.

Does anyone know of a way to include all of this? I have looked into chtMultiRegionFoam, but (as far as i know) that would require me to simulate the external cooling as well.

I should mention that I am stuck to using OpenFOAM 2.2.x, but suggestions regarding other version are also welcome.
