I have problem with defining moving heat flux in udf. Heat flux is limited by circle and rest of the face transfering heat by convection.

I tried many times to modify this code but I even wasn't able to have stable heat flux circle on a face with desired parameters.

Mesh geometry is a cube.

I'll be really gratefull to anyone who help me with this code.

#include "udf.h"


  real q = 1000;
  real t = CURRENT_TIME;
  real x[ND_ND]; 
  real qO;
  real xO = 5;
  real xOt;
  real z = 0;     
  real v = 0.003;
  real r = 0.001; 
  real alfa = 20;
  real TO = 290; 
  real Tp = 280; 
  face_t f;
  xOt = xO + v*t; 
  qO = alfa*(TO-Tp);  


       if ( ((x[0]-xOt)*(x[0]-xOt) + (x[1]-z)*(x[1]-z) ) <= r*r )
       F_PROFILE(f,thread,i) = q;


       F_PROFILE(f,thread,i) = qO;
