S2S radiation model
 
Hello all,

can anyone explain what is "Faces per Surface Cluster" ?
I'm confused on the procedure of clustering in S2S model and I've read theory guide but it still looks unclear to me.

Cheers,
Negin

Hello nenazarian,
using this method you can reduce the computational load of the simulation: the solver doesn't calculate the view factors of every cell-faces, but collects a certain amount of faces in clusters in order to calculate less view factors (because number of clusters < number of all cell-faces).
You need this method when the mesh is quite large and heavy.

Regards :)
