Dear All

I have been using WB as well classic for past one year, especially Structural. I have been asked to look into fluid and thermal analysis too. Following is my problem statement

Find the temperature distribution around a hot cylinder. The fluid around is air and the cylinder is steel with an insulated fabric. The temperature of the cylinder is 250 degree Celsius. Since its axi-symmetric, i was thinking of a 2d steady state analysis to start off with. I am asked to obtain the temperature value at various distance from the cylinder.

How should I go about modelling and loads on the system.

Thank you in advance
