Gearb0x is on a distinguished road
Dear Foamers,

I would like to add heat transfer to a model I already have and which is using simpleFoam as solver, LaunderSharmaKE as turbulence model (RANS).

My model is channel in the shape of a U-Turn. Setup should be easy enough, I guess :
Fixed inlet temperature
zerogradient outlet
heatflux specified at the walls
fluid is air

Where could I find basic tutorials to show me which files, properties, ... I should add to my case?

Thanks for your help!
