In ANSYS Release 11.0, what reference temperature is used for the convective film coefficient for PLANE77, SOLID87, and SOLID90?

Per equation 6-7 of the Theory Reference, the convective film coefficient (input using the SF or SFE command) is evaluated at (TB + TS)/2 unless otherwise specified for the element.


TB = bulk temperature of the adjacent fluid
TS = surface temperature of the model
