Coupling Fluent and Transient Thermal

itb7itb7 Member

Hello, I am trying to determine the aerodynamic heating of a nose cone from fluent in order to export the data to a transient thermal analysis to see how it heats up over time. This being the case, I have set up a system coupling to transfer data between the two systems, but I receive an error that my 'ExecutionControl' setting is incorrectly set. However, I have not been able to find where this setting is in either Fluent or the Transient Thermal systems. I am attaching picture of both the error warning and the system coupling setting I am using. Any input would be appreciated, thanks very much!

    If you're not worried about the thermal stresses you can do the whole lot in Fluent. Similarly you can pass the volume (temperature) data over too and make it a one way coupled problem.
