InfiniteCylinderRadiativeBC

Boundary condition for radiative heat exchange with a cylinderwhere the boundary is approximated as a cylinder as well.

This boundary condition computes the radiative heat flux from the boundary to an infinite cylinder completely surrounding it. The boundary itself is assumed to be a cylinder that is concentric to the enclosing cylinder. Geometry information is provided by boundary_radius and cylinder_radius parameters. The mesh is not queried for geometric information.
