To define heat transfer in a multiphase Eulerian simulation, you will need to visit the
Phase Interaction panel, after you have turned on the energy equation in the
Interaction... button to open the
Phase Interaction panel (e.g., Figure

Phase Interaction Panel for Heat Transfer
Click on the
Heat tab in the
Phase Interaction panel.
Select the desired correlation for the
Heat Transfer Coefficient. Note the following regarding the available choices:
is frequently used for Eulerian multiphase simulations involving a granular phase.
is frequently used for Eulerian multiphase simulations not involving a granular phase.
allows you to ignore the effects of heat transfer between the two phases
allows you to implement a correlation reflecting a model of your choice, through a user-defined function.
Set the appropriate thermal boundary conditions. You will specify the thermal boundary conditions for each individual phase on most boundaries, and for the mixture on some boundaries. See Chapter
7 for more information on boundary conditions, and Section
23.9.8 for more information on specifying boundary conditions for a Eulerian multiphase calculation.
23.5.9 for more information on heat transfer in the framework of a Eulerian multiphase simulation.
