Hi Ammi, This is not striaght forward to accomplish using Fluent alone. The way I would recommend working around this is to use surface monitors. Define a monitor at the surface where you would like the average temperature. (Solve--> Surface Monitors). Then go on to define the Y-axis as "Flow time"

Doing the above will record your time varying data into a monitor file. At the end of your simulation you can use Matlab, Excel or techplot to plot your results!

Good luck, Phil
