Difference between connections and contact regions

      In Conjugate heat transfer problem if we are giving contact regions instead of connections between the solid and fluid domain does the solver identifies this? or we have to mesh the connection separately before exporting it to the solver?


      For conjugate heat transfer problems what we have to establish between the solid and fluid domain-Connections or contact region?

      i have sent you description about how to handle geometry in dm with sharetopo. 


      i assume you are using fluent for cht. 


      now, when you have conformal mesh, please ignore connections and contacts. 


      when you have non conformal mesh, you can use contacts to define similar sizes or you can just suppress these connections and contacts. 


      if this helps you, please mark this post as 'is solution' to help others on forum.
