Hi
I want to model the room with one facade wall and window.
How can I consider the insulation value (R) for facade wall and overall heat transfer (U) in fluent? I can't find a way to input these data.
Know I input the convection heat transfer coefficient h for outside of the wall, but when we have the thin wall the conduction doesn't affect the model and it doesn't matter if we have insulation material or not.

Thanks.

Hi Nima,

I am not sure what is that you are trying to model, but just guessing from your query.

Looks like, you want to consider the wall thickness as well as insulation. Modeling both is not possible using thin wall. You can model one of them using shell conduction. If you want to model both, you need to create the solid material for both of them and then use the material properties.

Generally the resistance provided for heat flow is relatively very large for insulation. So if you have strong insulation, you can neglect the resistance provided by wall material. If this is true, just model the thin wall and provide insulation properties using shell conduction.

Thanks
