Default Temperature at a Distance From Curved Surface (Post Processing)

Hi All,

I'm trying to model a 2D natural convection problem involving an isothermal cylinder. My goal is to calculate the local nusselt numbers in the boundary layer directly off the wall. Is there a way I can draw a half circle concentric with my cylinder and then export the temperature along that?

Failing that, could I go back into the geometry and draw another half arc, concentric to but slightly larger than my cylinder, and tell Fluent it was a symmetry boundary condition or some such, and then just export the data along that line?

Any help would be appreciated,
