      Please i doing the simulation of water flowing inside a pipe of steel covred with an insulation material, i'm doing the simulation in 2D, i do the meshing and creat the interfaces between the different materials (steel,insulation) when it comes to the interface between water and steel i use as material steel, but when runing the simulation the temperature of the fluid remain constant the same for all othe rmaterials, please any seggustion how to solve this problemnand thank you so much n

      That's an external wall, so you won't get any heat from one side to the other as there is only one side. If you expand up the Geometry part in the first image I suspect you've not created a part in DesignModeler (or component if coming from SpaceClaim). Check the interface settings in Fluent, using Help, to see if it's a missing selection there or redo the geometry & mesh.n

      in this case i didnt gather all the components in one part, but when i do so i always get the same prblem, just walls without their shadowsn

      Check what the cell zones are created as, you may find the whole lot is fluid or solid. If that's the case correct those and the surface bc's should sort themselves out. n

      the solid zone are generated as solids, same for the fluid onesnthank youn

      In Fluent you have all the zones as solid? Or all fluid? n

      NO the solid one is as solid and the fluid one is as fluid, for water is fluid and for the other components is solid n

      Looking closely that interior is the fluid facets: don't change that. Where are the wall:wall-shadow pairs in your domain and what are their settings?nOut of interest where is the software running from? R16 is ancient so I'd suggest updating to 2020R2. n
