Summary0001687: Wrong class description
DescriptionIn the files (all descriptions based on radiationCoupledBase.H):


Description in header is wrong:

The options for the emissivity are "lookup" and "solidRadiation", not solidThermo.

Furthermore I think the descriptions are misleading, since (as far as I read the code) "lookup" does not read a volScalarField as such, but rather the value stored in the same dictionary under emissivity, i.e. a constant value (as in the example dictionaries shown).
And the solidRadiation options seems to use the emissivity values obtained at a different, mapped boundary condition. The description "use solidThermo emissivity" does not really clarify that.
TagsNo tags attached.

Thanks for the bug-report. I have corrected the documentation in OpenFOAM-2.4.x and OpenFOAM-dev, I hope it makes more sense now. If not please provide any additional description you would like added.
