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:
