Circular coldplate

This is a model of a circular coldplate where coolant comes in one side and splits into nine lines.

The coolant lines go around the plate to a return manifold adjacent to the entrance.

This model was built by creating 2D Plate elements of a cross section. Next the Plates were revolved to create the full 3D model in one operation.
