The Heating and Cooling a Cylinder model computes the radial temperature distribution within a long cylinder as it is heated and cooled by a surrounding fluid. The cylinder is broken into shells and the temperature of each shell is computed using a finite difference approximation to the radial heat equation in cylindrical coordinates. It is a supplemental simulation for an article by William Dittrich in The Physics Teacher (TPT).
