VISRAD is a 3-D thermal radiation and CAD code that simulates the reflection, emission, and absorption of light radiation throughout a complex system of surfaces. This view factor code features a user-friendly graphical interface for setting up 3-D object grids and displaying results from directed laser light and thermal radiation calculations.
VISRAD includes customized features that allow for easy setup and simulation of High Energy Density Physics (HEDP) experiments at major research laboratories.
With VISRAD, someone can easily set up a grid of surfaces, and simulate radiation flux and temperature distributions throughout the grid. It also includes pre-configured laser-beam and diagnostic port systems that allow for convenient setup, viewing, and simulation of laser beam experiments.
