Default transparant wall?
Posts: n/a

I'm trying to model a transparent wall, but the option in the boundary condition for a wall only gives me one choice, which is opaque. The wall in my case represents a plastic/glass wall. Can anyone please tell me where to find the option for transparency of the wall? Thanks a lot,

Dear Leo,

ANSYS CFX only have opaque walls.

What are you trying to model ? Incoming solar radiation? You can do that by adding a isotopic/directional radiation source. What you do not get is the radiation leaving the domain through the glass, which "hopefully" should be small compared to the incoming energy..

Hope this helps,
