Hi All
I'm a new user of Mathematica.The problem is that I started using Mathematica from the middle not the beginning.
Anyway, My problem is:
I have two Matrices
Temperature= T = [Ax8]
Radial position = RR = [1x8]
as an example, let A=1,
instead of Plotting T vs. RR at xy-axes, I want to map the data in a cylinderical Coordinates as a contour mapping, whic means I need to "copy" my data to N times.
My proposed procedure is to do the following:

Generate a position matrix, [x,y], as follows:

Do [x,y] RR=0,1,.145, Theta = 0,360,M  ( M is the step 360/N)
x = RR*Cos(theta)
y = RR*Sin(theta)
T=T @ RR

I would like to know:
1. if this is the easy way to do it ?
2. How can translate it to Mathematica Code?

Hopefully it is clear!

Thank you in advance!
