Simulator for Radiometry:Radiosity/Radiant Flux density?

  1. Aug 24, 2015 #1
    Hey All,

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any good simulation software packages that can do quantitative radiometry. I'm thinking COMSOL may have a radiometry suite, but I'm not very familiar with the software or package offerings.

    Basically, I'm trying to optimize the placement of hundreds of LEDs within a cylindrical container, such that I can get a nearly constant irradiance over an object placed in the center of the chamber.

    Thanks so much!

    I don't know any software, but you might try flexible LED's like the following: http://cooledgelighting.com/portfolio.php [Broken]

    There are a few good codes out there, ASAP is one:


    FRED is another:
