Could anyone tell me how to run a simulation using thermal accommodation coefficient?

      I'm using ANSYS 2020 R1 and mainly ANSYS Fluent module. I'd like to run a simulation with a plate whose thermal accommodation coefficient of its top and bottom surfaces are different. This is mainly used to see if an enough upward force can be generated in this case to overcome gravity.nI couldn't find guidance either in this forum or on Google. There are a few topics about how to change this parameter, but I even don't know how to include it into play. Thanks in advance!n

      What is the end goal of your simulation? If you could please help us understand, we might be able to give you a more complete answer.nThanks.nKarthikn

      Hi Karthik,nnThe final goal is to simulate heat transfer and fluid motion of microscopic structures. For example, simulating the flow-through velocity of a thin porous film may need the thermal accommodation coefficient.nnThanks,nLeon
