How to specify thermal contact resistances

Hello,

 

I have two objects made of different materials touching each other. I would like to set a certain thermal contact resistance (with the unit of m^2.K.W(^-1)) for the shared area between two objects. How can I do it in Simulation CFD?

 

Thanks.

That is correct!

 

You can also use surface solid materials and define a thickness using either conductivity or resistivity as the material definition. I typically prefer that approach.
