Solar radiation modeling in Star CCM+ V2
 
Hello everybody, I'm pretty new to Adapco products but rather experienced in cfd. Currently I'm working with Star-CCM+ V2, and I'm quite satisfied with this all-in-one tool. I'm going to analyze a solar thermal panel, and therefore in first place I need to model a radiative energy source (the sun). Actually I didn't find any clue on this topic in the user manuals, but it could be I simply didn't put enough attention to it. Some more experienced user can help me on this topic?

Thanks, Vmax

I think solar is going to be in 2.06 which should be around within a couple of weeks, but don't quote me on that.

Yes, solar radiation is in V2.06 and will be out in early march

Ok, thanks for the good news. But, as you know, software deployment estimates are not as compulsory as work deadlines... So I'm still trying to figure out a way to model solar radiation in V2.04.I'd be quite disappointed if there was no way in CCM+ V2.04 to manage a radiation source. Some help form experts is welcome.
