simulating tha path fof the sun
I'm working on a project where we are to simulate the path of the sun during a day in order to analyze the solar load.
I have found the coordinates and the corresponding time of the day.
How do i apply this in star-ccm+?

Thanks for any replies :)

Have a look in the user guide and search for some simple keywords. It will not hurt, it doesn't cost anything and it shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

Okay, I have to admit, the keyword "solar loads" has barely anything to do with your issue. The search result will just occur to drive you nuts.
And it's impossible to find out, that the uppermost result (What is the solar loads model?) might be somehow related to your issue. For sure that's just a translation error.

Therefore one can't expect you to see the tiny hint, that the field function syntax could be used for specifying variable angles / loads.
As a special service, just because it's Thursday and the weather was really fine today, I let you know you can also use that to reference a field function by using the $ operator.
