I want to ask if there is a condition that can be applied to a surface to be considered a mirror in ANSYS Fluent.
If not, could you recommend software for that?
For a closer view, I am simulating a box-type solar cooker in which I need to have mirror faces to reflect the solar radiation to the absorber.
Thanks in advance,

Opaque wall, then review the radiation options.

Thank you for the answer,
I have used the solar load model with the DO radiation model, and this picture below represents the wall where I want to apply the condition as a mirror.
I turned the absorptivity coefficients to 0, Is that right? because the mirror only reflects and does not absorb.
Thank you in advance

I think so, but also check how the solar ray tracing works.
