 February 23, 2009, 08:13 Calculate the heat transfer coeficient of a fin H #1 Christos Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, I am doing a heat transfer investigation of a fin and i amtrying to find the heat transfer coeeficient. When I select the Hcoef i only get some values of H in the base (which is where i defined the wall-temperature source fixed to 373). The value which i get are very big and they are not making any physical sense. I found somewhere in the forum that i have to do soemthing with the TBULK command in order to set the right temperature reference. Has anyone done that before? Kidnest regards

The other problem is that the calculated values are shown in the wall region ie in the base of the fin and not in the interaction f the fin with the fluid. Many thanks once again, regards
