Computing view factors

Because view factors have to be computed before a variable can be solved, CrysMAS will compute them automatically, if necessary. However, it makes sense, if you compute view factors independently from the variable solving by selecting Computation > Compute View Factors. In this case you can examine the quality of the rowsums in the Show Solver Information dialog, and you can improve them by changing view factor parameters on the View factors tab in the Numerical parameters dialog, see Radiation: view factors, or by modifying the mesh parameters, see Unstructured mesh Properties.
