Use of geometry in finite element thermal radiation combined with ray tracing

Abstract

In heat transfer for space applications, the exchanges of energy by radiation play a significant role. In this paper, we present a method which combines the geometrical definition of the model with a finite element mesh. The geometrical representation is advantageous for the radiative component of the thermal problemwhile the finite element mesh is more… (More)
