mbranag is on a distinguished road

I am creating a model of a circular oil cooler. The cooler is a single pipe that circumnavigates the central block 6 times. I was trying to limit my model to 1/16th of the full 360 degrees. The resulting model is a section of a cylindrical ring with 6 distinct pipes running circumferentially through it. Because the water in each pipe is distinct, I have to have six different regions for the water. As the water in the pipe ends up flowing through all six pipes in the model, I was trying to link the input temperature and velocity of each pipe to the output of the previous pipe. I also want to perform a transform on the temperature to account for the heat loss that occurs in the unmodeled portion of the cooler.

I have determined that I can't use a cyclic boundary condition as cyclic doesn't work between different regions. I was wondering if there was a mapped boundary condition which also includes a transform.
