How can you use transient temperature boundary conditions for cylindrical side faces in ANSYS Icepak?

There are two ways to do this:

1. If you are not modeling anything outside the cylinder, then you can create a low priority prism block so that the cylinder is within the prism block. After meshing you should have two blocks meshed as : (1) cylinder and (2) prism with cylindrical hole. Then create 4 walls touching the prism outside sides where the time dependent temperature can be defined

2. Create a ploygonal cylinder with 16 or 32 side faces and create walls and aligned with polygonal cylinder's side faces. Walls have the transient temperature bc capability.
