Attached is the slide showing the geometry. I need to know how to model thermal contact between the upper and lower plates.

Are the plates in physical contact? Or do you intend to create a contact between them? I am assimung you are going to use transient or steady state thermal? Are you trying to apply contact resistance?

Hi Karthik,

The plates are in physical contact at some places while there is a very very small gap at other places. It is a 2 dimensional steady state problem.

Yes, i am trying to apply contact resistance. Also need to know the approach to this problem where there is contact and no-contact both?
