thermal radiation
 
Hi All, We are doing the thermal analysis of a laser ray generating machine. It works on the flash lamp flashing for microseconds. Most of the heat is transferred by radiation. Can starcd (tabular input)handle such problem where time fragment is very small (say 200 microsecond)? If I give forcibly this it is not able to calculate view factors. Our main problem is that star is not calculating view factors. What could be the reason. Kindly help. Thanks
