Is it possible to simulate a combustion process of a furnace by considering fluid and solid domain?

      Hi, I had seen combustion simulation tutorials for a simple 2D geometry just by considering a Fluid domain.

      a) I want to know Is it possible to do combustion simulation considering both fluid and solid domain in Fluent ?

      b) In my project I need to simulate a combustion chamber by giving Heat and Gas input into the Furnace. Natural gas (Methane) is to be considered for the fuel.

      Example model I am asking about is shown. The colored Geometry is the Fluid domain and the shaded geometry is the Solid Insulation.

      Cylindrical geometry is the simple burner with inlet for fuel and air.

      Yes, it's called conjugate heat transfer. We don't tend to include the metal bits as they add to the cell count but other tutorials look at warming solids up as part of the model.

      Thank you.
      Are there any tutorials for Simple CHT with combustion ?

      Separately there will be, not sure whether there's one with both. Look in the Help system, there are several tutorials and videos.
