Is it possible to get max temperature from wall results (or other result mode)

Hi,

 

I am trying to find out the max temperature on a face. The only way I can do this is to manually place a plane on it and find the hottest regions and probe with the cursor. This obviously is quite time consuming.

 

I would much prefer to simply use the Wall Results method to pull the temperature data, but it only seems to give me the average temperature across the face. Is there any way to change this? Or does anyone have a better way of doing this?

 

Thanks

Does the hot spot on the face also relate to the hottest spot on the part?

Does the location of the hot spot move around?  If it moves would you say that that spot is typically in the same general area?

How much different is the wall calc temperature output and the max temperature output from porbing?

Is this surface attached to a component that is generating heat?

The hot spot is not the hottest spot on the part.

The hot spot moves around.

The wall result temperature is an average, I want the maximum, they're quite different.

The surface is not attached to a component generating heat.

 

I'm analyzing electronics enclosures and would like to see the outside skin temp on different surfaces.
