Calculating the Radiative Heat Transfer Rate

The radiative heat transfer rate is calculated as follows:

Q=σxε(T)x(T4–Tamb4)

Where,

Q is the radiative heat transfer rate.

σ is the Stefan-Boltzmann constant.

ε is the emissivity.

T is the entity temperature.

Tamb is the ambient temperature (temperature of the medium surrounding the model)
