Surface-to-surface radiation

Surface-to-surface radiation

Surface-to-surface radiation


I need to analyze the radiation between two parallel panels.
The front heat flux of one panel is known. Their temperature evaluations are what I need.
Should I consider it using SURF152 or radiosity?


RE: Surface-to-surface radiation

I am also having some problems with the radiation problems.
As far as i understand the surf152 is used for radiation to space and i dont know if the element is approprieted to surface to surface radiation.
Do you achieved already some progress?

RE: Surface-to-surface radiation

Hi zhiliu,

I beem also trying to implement some radiation model i think you can use surf152 and define the enclosure properties according to your objectives (open or perfect enclosure).
