Basics : Conjugate heat transfer

This LS-DYNA simulation shows a simple conjugate heat transfer problem. The default coupling method between the structure and the fluid is a robust monolithic strong coupling approach which allows for accurate solutions. In order to trigger the conjugate heat transfer solver, the FSI keywords must be defined as well, since the FSI algorithm is needed in order to detect which nodes belong to the fluid/solid interface. Of course, the corresponding solid thermal input deck must be set up.
