Co-simulation, map values to a non-convective boundary
I'm trying to run a co-simulation where I get the heat transfer coefficient and reference temperature from the first fluid flow simulation. In the second simulation, I had planed to use these values for a solid boundary with thermal specification= environment (convection+radiation). But I noticed that the thermal specification changed from environment to convection when I activated co-simulation. :(

Do you have any suggestion in how I can map the values to a boundary in the second simulation and still use the environment condition there when runing a co-simulation?

The support told me that it will be possible in the next version, 8.06.002. :)

But that is too late for me, so I will continue to do it "manually" with two simulations and two macros.
