RadCam (Radiation Computer Aided Modeller) allows modelling of thermal radiation in an enclosure. The enclosure is a regular parallelepiped (box) which may contain a participating media. RadCam allows multiple enclosures to be joined together to create various shapes (i.e. 'T' and 'L'shapes). The walls and media of an enclosure may also be subdivided to allow different thermal properties within a wall or media.

RadCam operates in two modes, TEMPERATURE and VIEW. In temperature mode, RadCam can solve for one or more wall ( and/or media) temperature/flux value. In the view mode, RadCam can compute the view factor or the radiation exchange factor.

A RadCam model is built using the high level programming language of RadCam. RadCam can create up to four different output files, they are:

  • Summary table of thermal properties and photon bundle information.
  • Text based graphic file which displays the final results.
  • Comma separated variable file (csv) to import into a spread sheet.
  • An input file for GNUPLOT for plotting of the data (i.e. contours of thermal properties).
