13.2 Modeling Conductive and Convective Heat Transfer

FLUENT allows you to include heat transfer within the fluid and/or solid regions in your model. Problems ranging from thermal mixing within a fluid to conduction in composite solids can thus be handled by FLUENT.

When your FLUENT model includes heat transfer you will need to activate the relevant physical models, supply thermal boundary conditions, and input material properties that govern heat transfer and/or vary with temperature as part of the setup. Information about heat transfer theory and how to setup and use heat transfer in your FLUENT model is presented in the following subsections:
