How do I define a symmetric boundary condition for a thermal solution?

In thermal problems, planes of symmetry behave adiabatically. That is, no

heat transfer occurs across them. In order to model this behavior, section

your model along the plane of symmetry. After meshing the model, do not apply

any boundary conditions to the nodes in the plane of symmetry. For thermal

analysis, nodes on external surfaces behave adiabatically when boundary

conditions are not prescribed.
