This page calculates the temperature (T1) of one isothermal (constant temperature) cylinder based on conduction in an infinite medium to a second embedded cylinder at known temperature (T2). Heat (Q) is conducted from cylinder 1 to 2.

Define the radii of the cylinders, the length (both cylinders are assumed to have the same length), the temperature of one cylinder, the distance between the cylinders and the heat flow. This page will calculate their corresponding shape factor and the temperature of the embedded cylinder.
