5.2 Modeling Conductive and Convective Heat Transfer

ANSYS 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 ANSYS FLUENT.

When your ANSYS 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. For information about setting up and using heat transfer in your ANSYS FLUENT model, see this chapter in the separate User's Guide.
