coefficient of convective heat transfer

Hello everbody

I am new to cosmos works and I am trying to simulate a simple hollow cylinderical die that is heated using a coil.

The heat source is added to the lateral surface of the die and the a convection load is added to the upper surface of the cylinder,

the problem is that solidworks asks for the coefficient of convective heat transfer (h) which i do not know.

It depends on the surface temperature of the die at steady state, however I do not it,

so can anybody help me on that?
