      Can i use Fluent to find the heat transfer through a pipe material (solid), that happens as a results of a heated fluid flow within the pipe?.I am simulating a pipe with heated water flowing through it, and i need to find the temperature on the outer surface of the pipe that is due to the heated fluid (water) flow within the pipe. Can i do this simulation using only Flunet or do i need to couple it with a Steady State Thermal Analysis.n

      Fluent is capable of solving conduction in the solid material. Conduction part of the energy equation is automatically solved when you enable the energy equation.nAlso, please take a look at this example from our Ansys Innovation Courses (AICs). This should help you understand how to set up this model.nAlso, please feel free to take these free courses. This will help you further your learning of what Fluids are and how to set-up simulations in Ansys Fluent.nThanks.nKarthikn
