Mixed Diffuse-Specular Radiation Benchmark

Application ID: 19661


This model shows how to use the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface to simulate mixed diffuse-specular reflection between surfaces in an enclosure. This model is separated in two parts. The first part compares the heat fluxes computed by the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface with the exact solution for two identical infinitely long parallel grey plates under mixed diffuse-specular reflection at constant temperature. The second part couples the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface with the Heat Transfer in Solids interface for the parallel plate geometry but with different characteristics and spatially varying temperatures.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
