Heat convection (film.f)

This subroutine is used for nonuniform convective heat flux, characterized by distributed load labels of the form FxNUy, cf *FILM. The load label can be up to 20 characters long. In particular, y can be used to distinguish different nonuniform film patterns. The header and variable description is as follows:

      subroutine film(h,sink,temp,kstep,kinc,time,noel,npt,
     &  coords,jltyp,field,nfield,loadtype,node,area,vold,mi)
!
!     user subroutine film
!
!
!     INPUT:
!
!     sink               most recent sink temperature
!     temp               current temperature value
!     kstep              step number
!     kinc               increment number
!     time(1)            current step time
!     time(2)            current total time
!     noel               element number
!     npt                integration point number
!     coords(1..3)       global coordinates of the integration point
!     jltyp              loading face kode:

!     field              currently not used
!     nfield             currently not used (value = 1)
!     loadtype           load type label
!     node               network node (only for forced convection)
!     area               area covered by the integration point
!     vold(0..4,1..nk)   solution field in all nodes

!                        2: displacement in global y-direction
!                        3: displacement in global z-direction
!                        4: static pressure
!     mi(1)              max # of integration points per element (max
!                        over all elements)
!     mi(2)              max degree of freedomm per node (max over all
!                        nodes) in fields like v(0:mi(2))...
!
!     OUTPUT:
!
!     h(1)               magnitude of the film coefficient
!     h(2)               not used; please do NOT assign any value
!     sink               (updated) sink temperature (need not be
!                        defined for forced convection)
