Parabolic solar collector

The data are the following: I have a copper pipe through which a heat transfer fluid is circulated, the pipe is placed under the free light of the Sun and to amplify the transmitted heat from the sun I put a aluminum pipe cut on generators.
At this time I was able to simulate the influence of the sun on copper pipe.
My questions are:
1. Can I simulate the heat transmitted from the sun on the aluminum surface and then reflected on copper pipe?
2. Should I first simulate convection and radiation between aluminum and copper in another program and will then introduce them in Fluent?

How are you?
Please how can i obtain solar radiation on absorber pipe and make it as a heat flux boundary condition by ANSYS-FLUENT?
