Predictive accuracy and computationally efficiency of method of lines (MOL) solution of the discrete ordinate method (DOM) coupled with different radiative property estimation techniques (GG, SLW, SNBCK) are assessed by applying them to the prediction of incident radiative fluxes along the freeboard walls of a 0.3 MWt atmospheric bubbling fluidized bed combustor (ABFBC) and comparing their predictions with measurements generated previously from two runs one without and the other with recycle. Freeboard is treated as a three-dimensional rectangular enclosure containing a gray/non-gray, absorbing-emitting-isotropically scattering medium. Radiative properties of particles are evaluated by using geometric optics approximation. A comparative study is also provided between the source term distributions predicted by MOL solution of DOM with gray gas (GG), spectral line-based weighted sum of gray gases (SLW), and statistical narrow-band correlated-k (SNBCK) along the centerline of the freeboard for both runs. Comparisons reveal that the MOL solution of DOM with SLW model and geometric optics approximation provides accurate and computationally efficient solutions for wall fluxes and source term distributions in the freeboard of fluidized bed combustors containing particle laden combustion gases.

Predictive accuracy of discrete ordinates method (DOM) was assessed by applying it to the prediction of incident radiative fluxes on the walls of a gas turbine combustor simulator (GTCS) and comparing its predictions with measurements. Input data utilized for the DOM were measured gas concentration and temperature profiles and inner wall temperatures of the GTCS which is a cylindrical enclosure containing a turbulent diffusion flame of propane and air.

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...

In this study, banded one gas spectral line-based weighted sum of gray gases (banded SLW-1) model is coupled with a 3-D radiation code based on method of lines (MOL) solution of discrete ordinates method (DOM) for freeboard of METU 0.3 MWt atmospheric bubbling fluidized bed combustion (ABFBC) test rig containing non-gray gas, non-gray particle mixture bounded by non-gray walls.
