Library case Y616: Conjugate heat transfer of rotating object

This run simulates the flow and and conjugate heat transfer in a cross section of concentric pipes sectioned by radial fins. The fluid is sent in motion by rotation of the middle thick wall pipe, the thermal conductivity of which is 3 times higher than surrounding fluids. It is heated up by volumetric heat source, while the inner and outer walls of the domain are hold under constant cold temperature.

The example demonstrates how to use PLANT for calculation of conjugate heat transfer in moving objects.
