Hi!

I have simulated a buoyantSimpleFoam case with solarLoad, it gives qr variations but does not give any temperature variations. I want to include view factors in order to have temperature profiles on surfaces.
While using solar load+viewfactors, it asks for qr boundary condition. If I keep all patches as calculated with 0 value or as
Code:
        type            greyDiffusiveRadiationViewFactor;
        qro             uniform 0;
        value           uniform 0;
It does not give me qr variations but calculates qr_reflected and qr_primary. I believe the error is because the qr calculated by solar Load model is not being used in view factor model.

I want to know how to use irradiance calculated by solar load model via ray tracing as qr input for view factors.
Or is there something else wrong in my case ?
