How to define “transmitted solar heat flux” for boundary condition?
 
Dear All,

I am simulating heat transfer and air flow inside a building space which has a translucent roof. My problem is about how to define the thermal conditions of this translucent roof which I have chosen the boundary condition type of WALL for.

The given data for this roof are:
- transmitted solar heat flux (W/m2)
- thickness and material properties
- convection heat transfer coefficient (h) (W/m2.K)

Could you please let me know how I could solve this problem?
Thank you.
