how to apply solar heat flux in acusolve
I'm a b tech student n doing my project on heat transfer analysis of a building. I'm using acusolve for cfd analysis and would like to know how solar radiation flux can be applied on a building and how it can be varied along the sun path

I would recommend you to download the tutorial explaining solar radiation from Altair Client Center.

Workshop10 - Modeling of Automobile Cabin using Solar and Enclosure Radiation

I am not sure if it is possible to vary along solar path. You might need to do several simulations to get that.

There is another source of information for AcuSolve and it might be helpful to keep track during your studies.
