In both cases (surface and volume), I selected only the fluid region when getting the mass weighted average temperature, not the solid regions. I am not sure why the surface and volume temperatures are not the same for my 2D simulation. 

When you say the HTC calculation depends on what I am comparing to, do you mean for validating my simulation? 

So for internal flows, does it make sense to get the average HTC by: 1. outputting the mass weighted average temperature of the fluid 2. inputting this temperature value in the 'reference temperature' in 'reference values' and then outputting the fluid average HTC using this reference temp? 

Thanks in advance
