Hi steelxpert 

Yes, you are correct. In AIM, HTC can only be calculated with the expression as it's not a built in variable.

The following expression can be used t get the required value:

Average(SurfaceHeatFlux,GetSelectionSet("@int1"),"Area")/(Average(Temperature, GetSelectionSet("@int1"),"Area") - 298*1[K])

For this to work, it is required to first create a selection set comprising of the surfaces where HTC is to be calculated. I have named this selection set at "int1" in the above example. Here is the output I got:

Please give it a try and I am sure, it will help. in case you still have a query, please let me know.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Gaurav
