    It doesn't make a lot of sense to use an FEM code for a CFD application. Simply the airflow is more complex and the temperature field will be different than in your constant 20 W/(m^2*K).
    I would rather advice to use SW Flowsimulation and use the result of that CFD simulation in a stress simulation to find the critical stresses than doing CFD in a stress simulation (FEM) tool.
