Custom heat flux distribution based on position on surface

Custom heat flux distribution based on position on surface

Custom heat flux distribution based on position on surface

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?

Thank you,
