simulate temperature distribution on moving body on ansys apdl?

I want to simulate the heat generated in a sliding contact by simplifying the problem to a halfspace with velocity vx and a semi-elliptical heat source (where the contact, hence the frictional heating would occur). (i attached a scheme to make it more clear.)

I want to get the temperature distribution that would appear near the surface. 

 I cant get the velocity to make any effects on how the heat is distributed in the body. does anybody know how to do this?


Thanks in advance !!

Temperature rise by frictional sliding contact between two bodies can be directly modeled. Here is an example. This could be simpler and more accurate than a semi-elliptical heat source. 

I see you have asked a similar question in another Discussion. I will post a cross link from that back to this for reference, but it might be better to have a single discussion thread.
