Using Ray Tracing to Model Thermal Radiation in LIGGGHTS

Submitted by apsantos on Tue, 11/01/2022 - 01:07

Hello LIGGGHTS community. I am new to LIGGGHTS, having mostly used LAMMPS.

I am interested in incorporating radiation in DEM models for some phenomena where it is likely a large heat transfer mechanism.

I saw a 2013 presentation and seminar paper by Stefan Amberger, Christoph Kloss and Stefan Pirker on "Using Ray Tracing to Model Thermal Radiation in LIGGGHTS".

Is that ray tracing method implementation available in any form of LIGGGHTS? Perhaps in Aspherix or an older version? I did not see this particular implementation in the forum, GitHub or the documentation, but I wanted to check and make sure.

Thank you for your help.
