Surface-to-Surface Radiation with Diffuse and Specular Reflection
Application ID: 72231
This tutorial shows how to use the Surface-to-Surface Radiation interface to simulate radiative heat transfer with radiation between diffuse emitters and diffuse-and-specular reflectors. This model is separated in two parts. The first part focuses on a validation test for the radiative heat flux computed from the ray-shooting algorithm, wherein results are compared to an analytical solution for two parallel plates at constant temperature. The second part introduces coupling with Heat Transfer in Solids.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
