I am new to Ansys Fluent and am trying to model heat transfer through a system of fins. The analysis is in 3D.
I have set the Energy Equation as ON. The problem is that when I set heat loss by convection in the fins, a heat transfer coefficient is demanded by the software. However I am looking to evaluate the overall heat transfer coefficient of the fin system in the first place. Shouldn't the model be completely solved simply by knowing the material properties of the fin and the fluid and the velocity and temperature of fluid at the inlet?
