    Time Dependent Solar Radiation Study

    Timothy Jordan

      I'm looking to analyze a fixture that will be mounted in ground and is subjected to solar radiation. I'd like to see the temperature of the fixture over time, and how it changes depending on time of day. In Solidworks Flow Simulation there is an option to select time of day and location for solar radiation. Is it possible to do a time dependent study, where the solar radiation setting for time of day is automatically incremented? Or is the best method to do several steady-state analyses, manually inputting different times of day? Thank you.
