dear all,

i have an electrical machine with stator and rotor, and in between them is an airgap. i would like to estimate the heat convection coefficient at the faces of the stator inner face and rotor outer face when the rotor rotates and the air in the airgap flows due to the rotation.

is there a method/procedure i could somehow follow to perform such a simulation please?
Thank you for your kind attention.

Kind regards,
Currently using: ANSYS v13
