Heat transfer problem

I have a hot rotating cylinder subjected to cool airflow (airknife) and i want to know the temperaturedistrubution in the cylinder. The cylinder is being heated at one location and cooled by the airflow at another location. The model is 2-dimensional, which solver should i use? Do i have to simplify the problem? Thankful for any help:)

Hi Magnus,

if you have to look at a conjugate heat transfer problem (solid and fluid) you have to use the chtMultiRegionFoam.
