Default CFD simulation and heat transfer of gap flow in rectangular duct

Hey guys,

Although I completed all the tutorials I'm new to openfoam and CFD simulation in general. For my thesis I have to simulate a gap flow and the heat transfer to the wall trough a rectangular duct with a height of 0.1 mm. Inlet and outlet are big compared to the duct and the pressure is set from high to low.
Before I start I want to make sure that openfoam is the right program to use. So my question is whether it's possible to simulate the flow and the heat transfer in the duct with the same grid and simulation or if it would be better to simulate the heat transfer separately e.g in Ansys?
Furthermore I'm wondering if and how it's possible to run the simulation with saturated steam in openfoam.
If you need any further information just ask!
I'd be very grateful for any help!
Cheers Marvin
