Hi, I am a newbie to Induction Heating. My question is this: If I am using a conventional helical Cu Coil as Inductor with Solid Steel cylinder as Work piece, Will the heating be from the core of the steel to the surface or the other way. In other words, will the core temperature of the steel work piece be very high and gradually decreases to the steel surface or VICE VERSA..I am confused in which direction this occurs..Also, instead of Solid work piece, if i use a hollow pipe of reasonable thickness (but same diameter), will the property change?
