Non-physical temperature at symmetry plane
 
Hi guys,

I'm applying volumetric heating to a cylinder which is attached to a rectangular box with a symmetric boundary condition as shown in the attached picture.

The problem is that I get a cold edge along the symmetric plane in the small volume that is being heated.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Any thoughts? Surely someone here has encountered a similar problem or has an idea of what is going on.

Thanks!
