How to include sun radiation in a Solar Updraft Tower
 
Hello everyone,

I'm new with ANSYS-CFX and I am trying to figure out how to include in my CFD model the external radiation of the sun. The system which I am studying is a Solar Updraft Tower. I couldn't find any tutorial appropriate for this issue.

Thanks in advance,
Nikola

Have a look at the tutorial example "Air Conditioning Simulation". Also ANSYS support has some examples of solar heating so ask them as well.

Thank you!

The version installed in the university does not support Fluent Solar Load Model. Is there another way to include solar radiation? Thank you in advance!

This is the CFX forum. If you are using Fluent then you are on the wrong forum.

Yes you are right, sorry. Is there another way to include solar radiation in ansys cfx?

Yes, CFX has some tutorials on air conditioning which include solar loads. It can be implemented as either heat sources directly on the surfaces, or as radiative boundaries.
