There are two options for specifying surface heat transfer coefficients in DB CFD. You can either specify coefficients yourself for walls, ceilings and floors or you can allow the software to automatically calculate cell based surface heat transfer coefficients for all surfaces using an internal wall function method (default). You can access these options under the 'Surface Heat Transfer' header on the Calculation Options dialog.
