Conjugate Heat Transfer: Heat transfer coefficient undefined?

Hi, Hello:

I was going through the tutorial for Conjugate Heat Transfer - Electronic Cooling. Somehow I realized that the software does not request me to define a heat transfer coefficient over convective surface. I am wondering how does the software cater this parameter. Does it has a default set up behind the background? Or the heat transfer coefficient is not requested in this kind of projects?

Cheers!

Hi Che (@cwo5035) and first of all a warm welcome from SimScale. Happy that you found your way to us! :slight_smile:

Regarding the material definition, solid material properties and the behavior are defined by Thermal solid model. Options that can be chosen can be found inside the documentation:

Thermophysical Solid Models

Does that answer your question?

Cheers,
