I am currently working on the thermal LBM in OpenLB and this part of the code is under heavy development at the moment. We hope to publish a revised version of the Advection-Diffusion-Equiation implementation till the end of the year.
However, you can set a constant temperature boundary by the function .addTemperatureBoundary() in AdvectionDiffusionBoundarys. Have a look at the example RayleighBenard2d or 3d, which are simulations of the rayleigh benard convection between a hot plate at the bottom and a cold plate on top (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rayleigh%E2%80%93B%C3%A9nard_convection)
