What is Partial Enclosure Temperature on radiation panel? Do I need to change it?

The Partial Enclosure Temperature is the temperature for radiation purposes of the boundaries not participating in the S2S radiation exchange. You do not need to change it because the default is 300K, a very low temperature for radiation purposes since radiation from those boundaries is neglected.

When the S2S model is used, you can define a "partial enclosure" (i.e., you can disable view factor calculations for walls and inlet and exit boundaries that are not participating in the radiative heat transfer calculation). This feature allows you to save time computing the view factors and also reduce the memory required to store the view factor file during the FLUENT calculation.
