Surface to Surface Radiation
I had a question regarding how surface to surface radiation works within ANSYS. In particular, the difference between setting the enclosure type to “perfect” vs “open”. My current understanding is as follows. In a perfect enclosure, all radiation emitting from every surface adjacent to the enclosure ends up striking the other surfaces and none is lost to the environment. In a open enclosure, if ANSYS determines that a particular ray of radiation would not strike any of the other surfaces, that radiation is treated as “ambient” radiation and is radiated off the environment. Is this a correct understanding?
