Please can someone please help me to describe how fluent interpret wall thickness in 2D axisymmetric simulation. I can't find a material for this.
Someone told me that specifying the pipe/material properties and the wall thickness is not necessary when doing 2D axisymmetric simulation, where the geometry represents the fluid alone.
Please can someone enlighten me and may be recommended further material.

It's what is says: you give the wall a thickness. So if you're modelling a pipe, you've meshed the fluid part and can simply model the pipe wall as a line in geometry & give it a thickness in Fluent to calculate conductivity. You may also want to review shell conduction.
