How do I measure solar radiation ?

Hi all ,

I'm simulating one of our products ( a digital display screen ) in various external locations and orientations.

I'm particularly interested in the effects of solar radiation.

I'm struggling to find a way of measuring ( with a goal/surface/etc ) the actual solar radiation hitting our product , I need to measure both the direct normal i.e. the amount of radiation arriving from the sun as well as the values on vertical / horizontal structures.

 

I've got calculated values but I need to cross check these with the CFD values.

 

Has anyone done this and can point me in the correct direction ?

 

Thank in advance

 

Peter
