Hello Michael,

Yes- it seems that this BC works like Robin boundary condition. One region has some non-uniform Robin condition, and the other has the mirror version of this BC.

No- can we use this BC? Here is my doublt: we fix some coupling BC, any BC (Dirichlet, Neumann, Robin, mirror-Robin). We solve first region, after that the second region. We get some fields, but... do those fields really represent the fields that we should acquire? Can we arbitrary split, for example, a heated rod into 100 random sections, "bind" them with this mirrored Robin BC, solve each of those 100 sections serially and still obtain the right heat distribution? Because this is what the solver does...
I have some doubts about that, and would be very happy to see some (any) literature regarding this subject.

Best,
Pawel

If I understood right, OF will manage the A-B coupling, if I impose a solidWallHeatFluxTemperature with a properly chosen q (gradient 0 as suggested in another post). But what about the B-C interface? Cheers, mad

Could you please post the files in the 0, system & constant directories for this problem (if you still have them)?

Thank you,

Mirko

in the meanwhile, I changed approach, thus I cannot help on the setup of your case neither give you those files. If you want to take a look, the thread: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...egionfoam.html explains what I have learnt on chtMultiRegionFoam.
Enjoy
