Box Solar Cooker Simulation

      I have made a box solar cooker and I want to simulate it in Ansys Fluent Acadimic V19
      I have finished the geometry and meshing
      Please what is the recommended steps or tips or models and boundary conditions in Ansys fluent.
      And the most important thing is that when the cooker is closed there will be a greenhouse effect in it and we don't have inlet or outlet at that time so do we have to make an inlet and outlet boundary conditions
      Note: The contours we want is that of transient variation of temperature in the solar cooker .
      Any answer will be appreciated
      Thank you
      Mahmoud

      Hello,


      There are some references on modeling of solar cooker using Fluent. You can go through the following links for references.

      These might help you in understanding of boundary conditions and modeling advices.
