How to set up/model surface coating?

      Hello, I am working on a heat sink with forced convection cooling. For the application I am using this for, I would like to model the effect of a thin surface coating to prevent corrosion. Something along the magnitude of 200 microns with a very low thermal conductivity. How would I be able to model/mesh this?n

      If it is layer is really thin, you could try using the thin wall modeling in Fluent. Please take a look at Section 7.4.15.3.7. Thin-Wall Thermal Resistance ParametersnHere is the link: https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v202/en/flu_ug/flu_ug_sec_bc_wall.htmlnThanks,nKarthikn
