The axial length is arbitrary. Two element types are defined so that the same model can be used for the thermal
and stress solutions. A radial grid with nonuniform spacing ratio (1:2) is used since the largest rate of change of
the thermal gradient occurs at the inner surface. Surface stresses are requested on element 1 and 7 to obtain
more accurate axial and hoop stresses at the inner and outer radii. Nodal coupling is used in the static stress
analysis. Results Comparison
