Default Fluent incident radiation problem

Dear Fluent users,

enclosed you receive the collector model, with which we simulated the irradiation on a windowpane. The collector model consists of a rectengular-box, which is flowed through with air. The radiation falls through the windowpane on the rear wall. Thus the rear wall is warmed up and transfers the energy to the air flow. The following boundary conditions were set (see appendix).

Incident radiation on glas surface = 1000 W/mē

glas area = 1,8 mē

glas absorption coefficient band 1 = 32 1/m

band 2 = 200 1/m

velocity inlet = 0.2 m/s

After 350 iterations the simulation converged. The results are as followed (see appendix).

Inlet temperature = 300 K

outlet temperature = 310 K

glas temperature = 303 K

wand on backside = 314 K

flux report inlet/outlet = - 310 W intergral incident radiation on backside (absorbed energy) = +1788 W

energy balance = 1478 W

The energy balance is unfortunately not correct. The windowpane is impermeable for infrared radiation (Coeff=200 1/m). The absorber can therefore lose no energy to the environment by radiation. As a test we put the irradiation directly as a heat flux on the absorber and set the windowpane on diffuse. Now the air flow experiences a rise in temperature of about 80 K - this is realistic.

Can someone help me with this problem ??

Thanks for help, Michael Schwarz
