Macros for discrete ordinate, non gray model
Hi all,

I am using the discrete ordinate, non gray radiation model. I am after the macros to access the incident radiation for each band and the absorption coefficient for each band as well.

Anyone able to assist?

Hello Yash
you can access to Incident radiation of each cell by using the following macro(in DOM):
where i is the number of grey band and you can change it from 0 to the last band.
you yourself define absorption coefficient for each band! so you obviously know its value. If you want to define not a constant absorption coefficient for each band you can use it's standard macro:

as an example:
#include "udf.h"
DEFINE_GRAY_BAND_ABS_COEFF(user_gray_band_abs,c,t, nb)
real abs_coeff = 0;
real T = C_T(c,t);
switch (nb)
case 0 : abs_coeff = 1.3+0.001*T; break;
case 1 : abs_coeff = 2.7 + 0.005*T; break;
return abs_coeff;

good luck
