Sun's Radiation Effect on Two Coolers Placed Under a Parasol

Application ID: 12825

This tutorial model illustrates how to analyze the thermal effects of the sun as an external radiative source and considers wavelength-dependent surface emissivities. Specifically, the model features two coolers containing beverage cans that are exposed to ambient conditions and a parasol that provides shade for one of the coolers. The temperature of the cans is computed over a span of several hours.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
