Accuracy of Monte Carlo method re-examined on a box-shaped furnace problem
Erturk, H; Arinc, F; Selçuk, Nevin (1997-07-01)
Monte Carlo method was applied to predictions of radiative heat flux density and source term of a box-shaped enclosure problem based on data reported previously on a large scale experimental furnace with steep temperature gradients typically encountered in industrial furnaces. The rectangular furnace under consideration has black interior walls and an absorbing emitting medium of constant properties. The predictive accuracy of the model was evaluated by comparing its predictions with exact numerical solutio...

Ceramic layers used as protective coatings in tribological applications are known to be prone to cracking and debonding due to their brittle nature. Recent experiments with functionally graded ceramics however show that these material systems are particularly useful in enhancing the resistance of a surface to tribological damage. This improved behavior is attributed to the influence of the material property gradation on the stress distribution that develops at the contacting surfaces. The main interest in t...

Near-field radiative transfer (NFRT) has attracted attention due to the potential of obtaining improved amount of heat transfer between media separated by distances comparable to or smaller than the dominant wavelength of emission. Such potential has been demonstrated in vacuum environments to form the basis of mainly near-field thermophotovoltaic systems and further, conversion into electricity with high system efficiency. In this thesis, an analytical analysis is performed to gain insight on nearfield rad...
