In this study, a radiation code based on the method of lines solution of the discrete ordinates method for the prediction of radiative heat transfer in nongray gaseous media is developed by incorporation of two different spectral gas radiative property models, banded spectral line-based weighted sum of gray gases (banded SLW) and gray wide band (GWB) approximation in the presence of nongray absorbing-emitting-scattering particles. The aim is to introduce an accurate and CPU efficient spectral gas radiation model, which is compatible with spectral fuel/ash particle property models. Input data required for the radiation code and its validation are provided from two combustion tests previously performed in a 300 kWt atmospheric bubbling fluidized bed combustor test rig burning low calorific value Turkish lignite with high volatile matter/fixed carbon (VM/FC) ratio in its own ash. The agreement between wall heat fluxes and source term predictions obtained by global and banded SLW models reveal that global SLW model can be converted to an accurate wide band gas model (banded SLW) which can directly be coupled with spectral particle radiation. Furthermore, assessment of GWB approximation by benchmarking its predictions against banded SLW model shows that GWB gives reasonable agreement with a higher CPU efficiency when the particle absorption coefficient is at least in the same order of magnitude with the gas absorption coefficient.
