  • How do I set the pressure, temperature, and mass flow rate through a tube for a flow simulation?

    I'm simulating tubing in a nuclear steam generator to see the heat transfer characteristics. I know what the flow rate, pressure, and temperature need to be on the inside of the tube, and what the starting temperature...
