Default radiation patches, viewfactors
Posts: n/a
Hi, anyone familiar with thermal radiation in Star-CCM? Is it normal for the viewfactors, radiation patches calculation to take as long as 22 hours (see below) prior to the 1st iteration of the computation?? I'm letting Star-CCM to create the patches automatically by simply running the solution. Is there something wrong here or any method to make it faster?
