Conduction Between Concentric Thick-walled Cylinders

I am a new openFOAM user and try to get used to it through some "tutorials". I want to solve this problem in openFOAM:,2/Itemid,206/

It is a simple conduction problem: solid-fluid-solid with fixed temperatures at the INNER and OUTER parts. I couldn't find a solver that can really handle this. So far, I simply used the basic scalarTransportFoam and just neglected the wall-thickness... that was not a big deal. But I want to simulate the entire problem..conduction through solid and fluid. The only heat transfer that has to be taken into account is conduction.

Can anyone help me?

no one can help?

I have no experience of this kind of simulation but maybe this solver is a starting point,

Good luck!
