I am quite new to the CFD world and currently doing a simulation for my Masters. I'm trying to simulate a heat transfer analysis using a Flat plate and tube attached to it and the water flows through the tube (Screenshot Attached). I need to apply heat to the flat plate and study the heat transfer and the pressure drop of the fluid. But After the simulation run, I don't see any heat transfer happening. Below are the parameters I used to run the simulation. I have attached the parameters.
Please help to identify my mistake.

Is your flat plate a surface? Or is it a solid geometry with a thickness? Have you paid attention to the contact between the pipe and the plate?
It is a solid geometry with a thickness of 0.5mm. Yes, I checked the contact region between the Plate and the Tube. In the Boundary conditions, I Applied the heat to the surface of the plate and heat flux between the plate the tube. And also between tube and the fluid domain.
Can you upload a sketch of your case please.
How did you calculate heat flux for the surface ?
I used the data from a research journal. Do you think i have to calculate the heat flux according to the geometry?
I observed you are an expert in CFD. Pls kindly assist me with two-phase analysis. my earlier thread read as follows:
I want to analyse two-phase interaction between nanoparticle and liquid, precisely water. Though there are numerous video tutorials online, I never came across any that treat nanofluid as a solid-liquid heterogeneous mixture. I have created my geometry and meshing was successful. in the pre-processing, I want a guide on how to set up the multiphase parameters using Eulerian VOF and mixture models in the turbulent region. I have knowledge of the turbulent setup. I would appreciate your response.
