External Radiation Sources for Thermal Analysis

    • markg0311


      Is there the ability to include external radiation sources in ANSYS Mechanical APDL for thermal analysis using the radiosity solver. I know one can define thermal radiation as a load on surfaces, and have radiation between bodies at temperature. But if one has a large external radiaiton source (such as the sun, or a large building) how could that be incorporated into the model?

      You can model radiation from a point source by using SURF152 elements Have a look at 5.4. Modeling Radiation Between a Surface and a Point.
