Question Finding Convective heat transfer from air flow through cylinder

Hello all!

I am trying to model the thermal effects of a certain velocity air flowing through a cylinder. The cylinder is being subjected to a flame on the outside and the function of the airflow is to create a high temp gradient generating high internal stresses in the specimen. I am new to ANSYS and am having a hard time figuring out how to accomplish this. Would the best way be to set up the flow in FLUENT and then import the results into a steady state thermal analysis?

Thank you for the help!

IMO, it seems like a good point to start from.. have a look at a cuple of one way FSI tutorials in ANSYS documentation..
