 October 22, 2018, 04:22 Line Probe as a Circle #1 New Member   Join Date: Oct 2018 Posts: 1 Rep Power: 0 Hallo everyone, I am trying to solve the following problem: I have simulated the heat transfer between the battery cell and the cooling fluid. The battery cell is modeled as a cylinder (so, as a circle in 2D). Now I want to plot the temperature distribution along the entire 2D circumference. My questions are the following: 1. How can I create a line probe along the circle surface? 2. I want to have my resulting plot-axis as "Y -- temperature" and "X -- angle in degree °", so I can plot my temperature distribution in the 0° - 360° interval. Is it possible to define this kind of such "polar coordinate system" with it's origing in the centre of the battery cell circle? Thank you all in advance! Kind regards, Valentyn

Don't use a line probe. With the coordinate system and plane you can get the plot you want.
