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

Application ID: 12825

The Parasol and Solar Irradiation app illustrates how to model the thermal effects of the sun as an external radiative source.

You can use the app to investigate the solar irradiation on a beach with two coolers placed in different positions under a parasol. You can vary the length of the day and set the location of the beach – anywhere throughout the world.

A typical modification of this app would be to replace the parasol and coolers with a building to account for solar irradiation in a climate control model of the building.

This application is included as an example in the following products:
