Is it possible to do cylindrical simulations using APDL (or pyansys)?

And when I say cylindrical, I know you can do periodic simulations on a sector, but can you do it on a 2D mesh?

For example, suppose I wanted to model the axial compression of a cylinder of material, is it possible to model that in 2D with cylindrical, periodic, BCs?

I.e. infinite number of sectors.
