View Factor on S2S radiation model
 
Hello all!

1. If I change the mesh but not the geometry, do I need new view factors?

2. Is there any better/faster way to calculate the view factors other than in Fluent?

It takes a long time, the computer often stops responding, and when I start the calculation it sometimes donīt find any ".s2s" file, even if I read from an existing file.
