Application ID: 65461
A gray body with a spherical cavity with various opening areas is simulated using the Heat Transfer, Surface-to-Surface Radiation interface. The emissivity for each case is computed and compared with the classical gray body theory. The COMSOL Multiphysics® result agrees very well with the most accurate theory.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:Heat Transfer Module
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
