Default thermo typr for liquid themophysical model

Hrushi is on a distinguished road

I want to solve steady state, incompressible, single liquid phase heat transfer problem. Is there any solver available in OF for the same?
If not, how to solve the above problem? Do we have to write separate solver for this?
As we want to solve hEqn, we have to select the thermophysical model for liquids. (Correct me if I am wrong!!!) Then we have to specify thermo type in thermophysical dictionary. What can we specify for the same?

Any help, suggestions please.

Hi Hrushi,

chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam should be able to do the job. Have a look at the multiRegionLiquidHeater tutorial in OF17x, it has a region with an incompressible liquid in it.
