Radome with solar heating
The model shown below is of a radome, a housing for a radar system, that is heated by the sun. The tutorial that is installed with Solaria includes step-by-step instructions on building this model. Vector based surface heat loads are applied to the external surfaces of the radome. Vector based surfaces heat loads reference a node that defines the location of the source, in this case the sun. Just move this source node and re-solve to change the location of the sun.
