temperature field in the hotRadiationRoomFvDOM tutorial
 
Hello,

I just ran the OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/tutorials/heatTransfer/buoyantSimpleRadiationFoam/hotRadiationRoomFvDOM and I am puzzled by the fluid temperature field.

It is constant except at the box surfaces.

I would have expected the air around the box to be heated as well. What am I missing?

thanks,

Mirko

Never mind. My temperature scale was incorrect. Setting it to 300-340 (instead of 300-500) fixed the problem.

Sorry for the noise,

Mirko
