I am presently working on a project that explores the transient temperature distribution across human tissue. The modelling should take into account the environment properties like temperature, humidity, wind velocity and biological parameters of the human body like blood perfusion rate, metabolic heat generation rate, thermal properties of various skin tissues etc..The geometry is similar to a co-axial cylinder assembly with each annulus representing a different tissue, such as , skin, muscle, bone, and blood. Kindly suggest a stepwise procedure for solving the problem using ANSYS FLUENT. In particular, I would like to know the procedure for including human tissue and its attributes, such as, perfusion rate and metabolic heat generation in material properties. The geometry is attached herewith for your perusal. Kindly help.

Things like conductivity/heat capacity are set in the Materials: you'll need to provide these. There are sections for fluids (blood) and solids (where the blood isn't).
Heat release could be mimicked with a source term (cell zone condition).
