The Monte Carlo code makes use of efficient ray tracing algorithms (for 2D, axisymmetric and 3D arbitrary unstructured meshes) which are described in detail. The solver accuracy is first verified in testcases for which analytical solutions are available, then validated... Title of program: COOLFluiD-MC Catalogue Id: AEZG_v1_0 Nature of problem Radiative processes play a fundamental role in countless science and engineering contexts, including combustion, astrophysics, atmospheric space re-entry, experiments in plasma facilities (e.g. shock tubes, arc jets). The problem we are interested in is the computation of radiative heat transfer on arbitrarily complex geometries, in particular to characterize thermal loads acting on the surface of space vehicles.
