enforce perfect enclosure radiaiton

    • Wasif


      I am trying to model surface to surface radiation on workbench mechanical 16 thermal analysis. Is there a way where I could model the radiation by enforcing ANSYS to view the surfaces with a factor of 1? I know that the perfect enclosure causes ANSYS to view the surfaces with a factor of 1 but, that is not possible in model because it is not a perfect enclosure. Is there a way enforce that?

      Unfortunately, there is no way to force a view factor. View factors are mathematically estimated based on the geometry. There is no provision to forcibly enforce a particular value of view factor.


      Best Regards,
