Smile Nusselt number - Heat transfer cylinder in cross-flow

RealENG22 is on a distinguished road

I have been practicing some CFD tutorials on Ansys 13.0 and I am trying to do some simulation on a basic heat transfer problem.

I have a cylinder in a rectangular domain (2D) and I am trying to find the Nusselt No. from 0 Degrees to 180 Degrees, that way I can compare it to some experimental data I found on the web.

I have set up my geometry/BC's/Mesh and done some initial runs using standard k-E models etc. (Reletive to the exp. data)

I'm wondering what the best way is to extract the data I need to find 'Nu' at angular positions around the circumference of the cylinder? I imagine I need to find a few other values and calculate it myself...


Appreciate the help.
