A short solid cylinder is subjected to the surface temperatures shown. Determine the temperature distribution
within the cylinder. Figure 101.1 Short Solid Cylinder Problem Sketch Material Properties

TTop = 40°F
TBot = TWall = 0°F Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
Since the problem is axisymmetric only a sector (one element wide) is modeled. A small angle Θ=10° is used for
approximating the circular boundary with a straight-sided element. Note that circumferential symmetry is
automatically ensured due to default adiabatic boundary conditions. POST1 is used to report centerline and midradius temperatures to compare results. Results Comparison
