    Fiber coil sandwiched between two plates. Thermal analysis not giving the type of answer that makes sense.

      (Ignoring the top plate for now)


      - Fiber 60W/m

      - Fiber is 1m in length

      - Fiber outer diameter: 250um

      - Bottom plate (copper) at a stable 55oC

      - Assume no thermal contact resistance


      Part attached.


      I expect to see a heat pattern on the fiber and for it not to be so uniform on the top plate. I have obviously done something wrong but cannot find the mistake.
