I'm trying to work out the issue that I'm running into with a steady state thermal simulation. I have a circular impingement of hot gas on a flat plate. I know the heat transfer coefficient as a function of radius within the plume as well as the gas impingement temperature. In a simplified sense I have the condition q"=hΔT, where h = h(r) and ΔT = (Timpingement - Tnode(X,Y). I want to apply a heat flux condition over the circular region which incorporates the "hΔT" information discussed above at each node with the surface heat flux condition. So far I have not been able to figure out a way to do this in Algor. Any suggestions?
