Hello, I'm new to CFD & OpenFoam. Currently reading up and trying tutorials.

My intention is to analyse the behaviour of a steel bar that goes through an induction oven.

My goal: to simulate the heat transfer and visualize the heat distribution on and in the steel bar

I there any similar tutorial in OpenFOAM that could help me?
Which solver should I use?
What related source can I read that could help me with this case?

Will greatly appreciate any input/guidance.

Thank you,
