Temperature-dependent behavior key based on the convection coefficient:



A negative convection coefficient, -N, is assumed to be a function of temperature and is determined from the HF property table for material N (MP command). This is the default.



A negative convection coefficient, -N, is used as is in the convection calculation.


By default in the Mechanical APDL program, a negative convection coefficient value triggers temperature-dependent behavior. In System Coupling, and in some one-way CFD to Mechanical APDL thermal simulations, it is desirable to allow convection coefficients to be used as negative values. To do so, issue the command SCOPT,NO.
