Galerkin method in radiative transfer

Tarı, İlker
An assesment is made of the Galerkin technique as a method of solution of the radiative transfer equation in absorbing, emitting and scattering media in terms of two specific applications: one between two parallel boundaries separated by a finite distance and the other between two concentric spheres. In both cases the bounding surfaces are maintained at different, but uniform temperatures and are considered to be opaque, gray and diffusely emitting and diffusely reflecting with uniform emissivity over each surface. By the implementation of the Galerkin technique, formal relations are developed for the computation of the radiative heat flux in both applications. In the second case, results are compared with the 'exact' numerical results available in the literature. It is demonstrated that the method is relatively simple to use and yields highly accurate results. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.

MOL solution of DOM for transient radiative transfer in 3-D scattering media
Ayranci, I; Selçuk, Nevin (2004-04-01)
A methodology based on the method of lines solution of discrete ordinates method for solution of the 3-D transient radiative transfer equation is introduced. The method is applied to the prediction of transient and steady state transmittances in a cubical enclosure containing purely scattering medium and validated against Monte Carlo solutions from the literature. The flexibility of the method for implementation of linear spatial differencing schemes, flux limiters and weighted essentially non-oscillatory m...
Modified Superformula Contours Optimized via Genetic Algorithms for Exponentially Converging 2D Solutions of MFIE
Guler, Sadri; Onol, Can; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Sever, Emrah; Dikmen, Fatih; Tuchkin, Yury A. (2017-05-25)
An infinitely smooth parametrical representation with derivatives of all orders is used, resulting into exponentially converging solutions of magnetic field integral equation (MFIE) in 2D either for TM or TE polarized excitations. A version of superformula modified for this purpose has been subject to optimization of its parameters via genetic algorithms to provide smooth parameterization for a desired boundary in two-dimensional problems. The organization of the MFIE kernel and convergence of the solution ...
Residual based a posteriori error estimation for Dirichlet boundary control problems
Yücel, Hamdullah (2021-09-01)
We study a residual–based a posteriori error estimate for the solution of Dirichlet boundary control problem governed by a convection diffusion equation on a two dimensional convex polygonal domain, using the local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) method with upwinding for the convection term. With the usage of LDG method, the control variable naturally exists in the variational form due to its mixed finite element structure. We also demonstrate the application of our a posteriori error estimator for the adapti...
Boundary element method solution of initial and boundary value problems in fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodynamics
Bozkaya, Canan; Tezer, Münevver; Department of Mathematics (2008)
In this thesis, the two-dimensional initial and boundary value problems invol\-ving convection and diffusion terms are solved using the boundary element method (BEM). The fundamental solution of steady magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow equations in the original coupled form which are convection-diffusion type is established in order to apply the BEM directly to these coupled equations with the most general form of wall conductivities. Thus, the solutions of MHD flow in rectangular ducts and in infinite regions...
Numerical Modeling of Electromagnetic Scattering from Periodic Structures by Transformation Electromagnetics
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2016-09-22)
The transformation electromagnetics is applied to the modeling of electromagnetic scattering from periodic structures in conjunction with the finite element method with periodic boundary conditions. In a unit cell of periodic structure, a uniform mesh is used over a flat surface and the arbitrary periodic surface is modeled by a coordinate transformation. The major advantage of this approach is that arbitrary geometries can be handled by using a single and simple mesh. Therefore, repeated computations (such...
