    Solar Radiation

    Sadat Mohammed
      I have been solving a steady state internal electronics cooling problem using 2007 floworks 64 bit windows version.

      Is there supposed to be a SOLAR radiation check box under general settings > radiation?

      I ran a few analysis with radiation, environmental radiation on. Specified solar opening radiative surfaces, but the radiation flux is always zero. The online manual says
      " Select solar radiation check box to enable directional radiation from ambient space..." But I could not find the check box.

      Also played with default wall radiative surface condition: Non radiative and wall to ambient. Nothing moved the needle.

      Thanks in advance for any help, tips and tricks.
