The paper presents results from numerical modelling of thermal conduction process in ABAQUS. The computing mesh of the model has been verified. Based on the simulation results, the average temperature of the heat exchanger’s external surface and the external heat convection coefficient have been determined. The process of thermal conduction in the fins is modelled on the basis of boundary conditions, which values are obtained by simulation of the heat convection process in the convector’s pipes. The average heat parameters have been determined relative to the first, middle and last fins, by developing a geometric model in ABAQUS. The computing mesh has been verified by increasing the number of cells and nodes. The external heat convection coefficient is calculated by Newton's law.
