Question Line Probe as a Circle

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,

Create a cylindrical coordinate system at the center of the battery, then apply a plane section using that coordinate system. Don't use a line probe.

With the coordinate system and plane you can get the plot you want.
