Question about Heat Transfer in CFD Fluent

      I am modeling three concentric cylinders where the innermost cylinder is long and the two other cylinders are shorter and of equal length to each other. The innermost cylinder represents a chromed brass pipe, the middle cylinder represents a thin, flexible heating element, and the outermost represents insulation. As the pipe is the longest, it has exposed portions where heat transfer (convection and radiation) will occur. Our measured temperatures through physical models is 60C at the heater and  50C at around halfway down the lower exposed portion of the pipe.

      Hello,
      Can you please give us more information on the applied boundary conditions and solution methods used? Thanks!
