POLYFLOW - initialisation of the TEMPERATURE field from a CSV file

Multi-domain non-isothermal flow case or heat conduction calculation: when the TEMPERATURE field is initialised through a CSV file: temperature results do not match the expected distribution. This may typically happen when the temperature has been initialised from a CSV file (average temperature in Material Data menu) AND through a CSV file (specified in the menu for Numerical Parameters). The double definition creates the trouble.
The easiest remedy here consists of assigning a single initialisation value (average temperature) in the menu of Material Data, and to specify the initialisation of the whole system through a CSV file in the menu of Numerical Parameters only. Whatever the value specified as average temperature, the CSV initialisation receives a higher priority.
The trouble does not appear for a single-domain calculation.
