Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Given an infinitely long cylinder with a specified surface heat flux,

the thermal resistance of an annular region is given by,

R_th = ln(r_out / r_in) / (2 pi L k).

When I'm calculating the thermal resistance to the centerline, r_in = 0.

Does that mean there is infinite thermal resistance?
