A series solution is presented to the heat-conduction equation for a heat-generating circular cylinder pierced axially by a ring of equal holes spaced uniformly on a concentric circle. The solution is based upon a class of potential functions previously defined by Howland. Typical nondimensional curves for peak and average temperatures and optimum location of the ring of holes for uniform convective cooling are presented. In addition, some shape factors or conductances for the geometry are given.
