Hi everyone,

I'm working on a project involving convective heat transfer using SU2. Can someone guide me on how to calculate the convective heat transfer coefficient in SU2 and display the results? Any help or examples would be greatly appreciated.

You could write the heat flux and temperature to the output file and construct the heat transfer coefficient from it in paraview:
It is part of the primitive variables, so you could also write:
