HI I understood Kappa means thermal conductivity but if I enter any value for it, simulation results in error before starting. So I have to use fluidthermo.
For Kappamethod, I have to chose fluidthermo or solidthermo. I understood depends on the material we have to chose fluidthermo or solidthermo. But I'm not sure how it computes the thermal conductivity value.
Also what is kappaname?
