Collapsed object

Radiation is calculated based on the temperature difference between objects. Therefore for the software to compute these temperature differences it must know the temperatures of the objects partaking in the Radiative exchange. In fixed temperature cuboids (collapsed or uncollapsed) the temperature of the object is explicitly set. Therefore these objects partake in Radiation but can only pass heat to other objects cooler than themselves. They cannot become warmer or cooler because their temperature is fixed by you. Objects set to have a fixed heatflow give out energy to the neighbouring grid cells but do not have a temperature calculated within them. Therefore there is insufficient data for the software to compute its radiation calculation and therefore they will not partake in the radiative exchange. Collapsed objects can only take part in the radiation calculation if they are set to be fixed temperature. If set to be conducting they cannot take part in the radiation calculation because they don't have grid-cells within them to store the temperature data.

Note: These objects will all act as obstructions to radiation, inhibitting the view factor between other radiating objects.

The total radiating faces is above the limit.

The number of radiating faces is limitating to 120000 radiating faces by default. If the number of radiating surfaces exceeds this value, an exception is thrown and the EFG aborted.

To increase the number of radiating faces using Environment variable, you can set

System environment variable: EFGFACELIMIT
System environment value: Number

When the calculation is done, the number of radiating faces can be found on the first line of the following file: BaseSolutionExchangefacelist (Open with Wordpad)
