Monte Carlo method was applied to predictions of radiative heat flux density and source term of a box-shaped enclosure problem based on data reported previously on a large scale experimental furnace with steep temperature gradients typically encountered in industrial furnaces. The rectangular furnace under consideration has black interior walls and an absorbing emitting medium of constant properties. The predictive accuracy of the model was evaluated by comparing its predictions with exact numerical solutions produced previously for the same enclosure problem. The comparisons show that the model provides radiative heat flux and energy source term distributions in close agreement with the benchmark solutions.

EVALUATION OF FLUX MODELS FOR RADIATIVE-TRANSFER IN RECTANGULAR FURNACES
Selçuk, Nevin (1988-07-01)
Three flux-type models for three-dimensional radiative heat transfer were applied to the prediction of the radiative flux density and the source term of a box-shaped enclosure problem based on data reported previously on a large-scale experimental furnace with steep temperature gradients. The models, which are a six-term discrete ordinate model and two Schuster-Schwarzschild type six-flux models, were evaluated from the viewpoints of both predictive accuracy and computational economy by comparing their pred...
Fabrication of nanostructured samples for the investigation of near field radiation transfer
Artvin, Zafer; Okutucu Özyurt, Hanife Tuba; Mengüç, M. Pınar; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2012)
Radiative heat transfer in nanostructures with sub-wavelength dimensions can exceed that predicted by Planck's blackbody distribution. This increased effect is due to the tunneling of infrared radiation between nanogaps, and can allow the eventual development of nano-thermo-photo-voltaic (Nano-TPV) cells for energy generation from low temperature heat sources. Although near field radiation effects have been discussed for many years, experimental verification of these effects is very limited so far. In this ...
Monte Carlo solution of a radiative heat transfet problem in a 3-D rectangular enclosure containing absorbing, emitting and anisotropically scattering medium
Demirkaya, Gökmen; Arınç, Faruk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
In this study, the application of a Monte Carlo method (MCM) for radiative heat transfer in three-dimensional rectangular enclosures was investigated. The study covers the development of the method from simple surface exchange problems to enclosure problems containing absorbing, emitting and isotropically/anisotropically scattering medium. The accuracy of the MCM was first evaluated by applying the method to cubical enclosure problems. The first one of the cubical enclosure problems was prediction of radiat...
Effect of limestone addition on radiative heat transfer during co-firing of high-sulfur content lignite with biomass in fluidized bed combustors
Ates, CİHAN; Selçuk, Nevin; Külah, Görkem (2018-01-01)
In this study, influence of limestone addition on radiative heat transfer during co-firing of high-sulfur content lignite with olive residue in the freeboard of 300 kW(t) Atmospheric Bubbling Fluidized Bed Combustor (ABFBC) is investigated by using an in-house developed radiation code based on Method of Lines (MOL) solution of Discrete Ordinates Method (DOM). The freeboard is treated as a 3D rectangular enclosure containing gray, absorbing, emitting gas with absorbing, emitting, anisotropically scattering p...
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...
