Evaluation of discrete ordinates method for radiative transfer in rectangular furnaces

1997-01-01
The discrete ordinates method (DOM) and discrete transfer method (DTM) were evaluated from the viewpoints of both predictive accuracy and computational economy by comparing their predictions with exact solutions available from a box-shaped enclosure problem with steep temperature gradients. Comparative testing shows that the S-4 approximation produces better accuracy in radiative energy source term than in flux density in three orders of magnitude less CPU time than that required by the DTM. The S-4 approximation can therefore be recommended to be used in conjunction with CFD codes. Copyright (C) 1996 Elsevier Science Ltd.

Performance of DOM and IDA with different angular discretization methods in 3-D absorbing-emitting-scattering media
Ozen, Guzide; Selçuk, Nevin (2013-03-01)
Predicted accuracy and computationally efficiency of Discrete Ordinates Method (DOM) and Improved Differential Approximation (IDA) were evaluated by applying both methods to cubical enclosure problems containing purely isotropically/linearly anisotropically scattering/absorbing-emitting-isotropically scattering medium and comparing their predictions with benchmark solutions available in the literature. Performances of DOM and IDA with S-8, S-10 and T-4 quadratures were assessed by comparing their prediction...

Performances of method of lines (MOL) and finite difference method (FDM) were tested from the viewpoints of solution accuracy and central processing unit (CPU) time by applying them to the solution of time-dependent 2-D Navier-Stokes equations for transient laminar flow without/with sudden expansion and comparing their results with steady-state numerical predictions and measurements previously reported in the literature. Predictions of both methods were obtained on the same computer by using the same order ...

A radiation code based on method of lines solution of discrete ordinates method for radiative heat transfer in axisymmetric cylindrical enclosures containing absorbing-emitting medium was developed and tested for predictive accuracy by applying it to (i) test problems with black and grey walls (ii) a gas turbine combustor simulator enclosing a non-homogeneous absorbing-emitting medium and benchmarking its steady-state predictions against exact solutions and measurements. Comparisons show that it provides ac...
Assessment of discrete ordinates method for radiative transfer in cylindrical furnaces
Selçuk, Nevin (1997-07-01)
The solution accuracy of S-n or Discrete Ordinates Method (DOM) was assessed by comparing its predictions with exact solutions reported earlier on a cylindrical enclosure problem with steep temperature gradients. The enclosure has interior black walls and an absorbing-emitting medium of constant properties. Predictive accuracy was investigated for two angular quadrature schemes: 1) the S-n discrete ordinates approximation (S-2 and S-4) and 2) the modified piecewise constant angular (PCA) approximation. Comp...

In regions with sparse ground motion data, simulations provide alternative acceleration time series for evaluation of the dynamic response of a structure. Different ground motion simulation methods provide varying levels of goodness of fit between observed and synthetic data. Before using the seismologically acceptable synthetic records for engineering purposes, it is critical to investigate the efficiency of synthetics in predicting observed seismic responses of structures. For this purpose, in this study ...
