Default External solar ray-tracing file as BC into FLUENT

Rep Power: 0 is on a distinguished road

I work on radiation and convection modelling of a solar receiver for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) tower systems and I need to find a way to import a ray-tracing file from an external ray-trace utility and map the data appropriately to my FLUENT domain. I have developed udf files that generate approximate flux profiles, but I anticipate a more accurate solution. Any help would be highly appreciated.
