I hope to simulate effect of IR bulb in chamber with solar load model.
If we use solar load model manually, we can get the uniform flux for computational domain.
But, I want to simulate effects to computational domain of distributed intensity of virtual IR bulb(lamp) from outside computational domain.
How can i do this modeling? help me~

it is not clear what you are wanting to do so explain in more detail and maybe with a diagram.
do you really need the solar model? Could you instead use hot objects to represent the bulbs and use the s2s radiation model and you would have a larger computational domain to include your bulbs with a low number of cells since ray tracing is the main factor and volume cell size has no effect on its solver.

You can also simulate it and make many different things, not only uniform flux. However, I still don’t understand some of the information you listed above. Because I truly don’t understand what you mean by simulating the effects of the computational domain of distributing the intensity of the virtual IR bulb from outside of the computational domain. I can tell you to try doing it using these lighting strips They might actually work really fine for your situation.

distributed intensity, ir bulb lamp, solar load
