Default emissivity

Hi guys,

I'm working with a radiation problem: a lamp that radiates close to a slab. I'd know the temperature distribution on the slab. When define the boundary condition, I've to set emissivity for the slab wall and shadow, is it right? Or could I use the default value (e=1)?

Thanks for your help.

Andrea

If the slab wall is a black body..then only you can set the emissivity as 1. Otherwise..you have to get the emissivity for that slab...and apply..

you can't set emmisivity for shadow wall..

option available will be only for non-shadow wall.because shaodow wall is a imaginary wall

For DO radiation model, emissivity option is available for both wall and wall-shadow... My doubt is this. Thanks

Hello, I think you have to set the same emissivity in the wall and in the shadow. The emission and the absorption depend of emissivity. For example you can have a treatment that improves your emission/absorption in one of faces of your wall. In this case you have to set a different emissivity of wall and shadow. One is the emissivity in the direction of the normal of wall and the other in the opposite direction.
