Simcenter 3D Solutions What do FSF and TCP mean in the Flow log file

Simcenter 3D



For thermal boundary conditions the flow log file shows several columns of 

data. The first three columns are self explanatory but I cannot find a 

description for the last two. What are FSF and TCP? 

Thermal Boundary Condition Type Value FSF TCP 


 1 - THERMAL BOUNDARY CONDIT Temperature 2.000E+02 F No No 



 "FSF" refers to "flow surface" and "TCP" refers to "thermal coupling". Note 

that "No" means that the selection for this thermal boundary condition is not 

part of a flow surface / thermal coupling, "Yes" means that a subset of the 

selection is part of a flow surface / thermal coupling, and "All" means that 

all of the selection is part of a flow surface / thermal coupling.
