Forced Convection using Thermal Analysis. Is it possible?

I have to do a thermal analysis of a long industrial oven. A gas burner is positioned at the left side. And 5 metres to the right is an extraction fan pulling air out from left to right.

The burner is putting in 550 degrees celcius. I need to know what the temperature it is at the far right. We have Solidworks Thermal Analysis only. Can the Thermal Analysis perform this or should we be using Flow Analysis as this is forced convection?
