A 3-D radiation model for non-grey gases

2009-02-01
A three-dimensional radiation code based on method of lines (MOL) solution of discrete ordinates method (DOM) coupled with spectral line-based weighted sum of grey gases (SLW) model for radiative heat transfer in non-grey absorbing-emitting media for use in conjunction with a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code based on the same approach was developed. The code was applied to three test problems: two containing isothermal homogenous/non-homogenous water vapor and one non-isothermal water vapor/carbon dioxide mixture. Predictive accuracy of the code was evaluated by benchmarking its steady-state predictions against accurate results, calculated by ray tracing method with statistical narrow band model, available in the literature. Comparative testing with solutions of other methods is also provided. Comparisons reveal that MOL solution of DOM with SLW model provides accurate solutions for radiative heat fluxes and source terms and can be used with confidence in conjunction with CFD codes based on MOL.

Tarhan, Tanil; Selçuk, Nevin (2007-01-01)
A novel parallel computational fluid dynamic (CFD) code based on method of lines (MOL) approach was developed for the numerical simulation of multi-component reacting flows using detailed transport and thermodynamic models. The code was applied to the prediction of a confined axi-symmetric laminar co-flowing methane-air diffusion flame for which experimental data were available in the literature. 1-, 5- and 10-step reduced finite-rate reaction mechanisms were employed for methane-air combustion sub-model.

A radiation code based on method of lines (MOL) solution of discrete ordinates method (DOM) for radiative heat transfer in non-grey absorbing-emitting media was developed by incorporation of a gas spectral radiative property model, namely wide band correlated-k (WBCK) model, which is compatible with MOL solution of DOM. Predictive accuracy of the code was evaluated by applying it to 1-D parallel plate and 2-D axisymmetric cylindrical enclosure problems containing absorbing-emitting medium and benchmarking i...

A 2D radiation model based on method of lines (MOL) solution of discrete ordinates method (DOM) coupled with spectral line-based weighted sum of gray gases model (SLW) is developed to predict radiative heat fluxes along the dilute zone of the lignite-fired 150 kWt Middle East Technical University (METU) circulating fluidized bed combustor (CFBC) under both air-fired and oxy-fired conditions. The dilute zone is treated as an axisymmetric cylindrical enclosure containing a non-gray, absorbing-emitting-isotrop...
