simple heat transfer problem
hi foamers ;

i have a simple heat transfer problem in 2D but i'm not sure if OpenFOAM can solve it

the problem as shown ;

the upper and lower walls have a thickness of solid material ( thermal conductivity k=*** watt/m.k) ,, and and the condition towards the flow is no slip condition

the other side of walls has a heat flux (can be uniform or any distribution)

the flow inside the channel is uniform (fully developed) (may be constant value or function of y)

which solver and boundary conditions i can use

thank you ..
