I need to calculate Heat Transfer Coefficient(HTC). So, how can I define geometry and correlation into the system?

Hello,

Thank you for your question. We have library to calculate HTC on TwinAPI system.

You can call this library and choose geometry what you want! You have to enter special input to choose correct correlation.

Correlations depends on Hydrodynamically Developed, Thermodynamically Developed, Mixed, Local and Pyhsical Properties. For example to calculate HTC on flat plate geometry;

Htc=htc.flat_plate(Mixed, Local, ReKin, PrandtlNumber, CharLength, ThermalConductivity, [])

You should only write True or False instead of Mixed and Local input. Other inputs should be value.
