Default wallHeatFlux compatibility to compute radiative flux

zfaraday will become famous soon enough
Dear Foamers,

I would like to know how can I do to make wallHeatFlux utility takes into account the radiative heat flux, since I found out it doesn't by default. Is there any utility over there that can calculate the total heat flux (or even only the radiative part) as wallHeatFlux does with convective heat flux?

My skills in C++ programming are quite weak for now so I would like to get accurate help in case I have to create and compile any application on my own.

Many thanks in advance.

Web site where I present my Final Thesis developed with OpenFOAM:
The case I talk about in this site was solved with chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam solver and involves radiation. If you are interested in these matters, you are invited to come in!

I'm newbie in OpenFOAM's world and not an English-speaking, so if I make any mistake a correction will be welcome!
