Hi, in my 0/T folder on one wall I need a heat flux (W/m^2) and convective heat flux (W/m^2K). I tried defining these conditions separately for the same wall or putting it in the same bracket but openfoam only uses one of them not both. Is there a way of doing this without using swak4foam? Example code below in which openfoam only uses the second condition.

type externalWallHeatFluxTemperature;
value $internalField;
q uniform 1000.0;
mode flux;
kappaMethod solidThermo;
qr none;
kappa none;
thicknessLayers ();
kappaLayers ();

type externalWallHeatFluxTemperature;
mode coefficient;
Ta constant 313.0;
h uniform 17.0;
value $internalField;
