Transient radiative transfer in participating media with pulse-laser irradiation - an approximate Galerkin solution

Okutucu Özyurt, Hanife Tuba
Busnaina, Ahmed A.
An assessment is made of the Galerkin technique as an effective method of solution for transient radiative transfer problems in participating media. A one-dimensional absorbing and isotropically scattering plane-parallel gray medium irradiated with a short-pulse laser on one of its boundaries is considered for the application of the method. The medium is non-emitting and the boundaries are non-reflecting and non-refracting. In the integral formulation of the problem for the source function, the time-wise variation of the radiation intensity at any point and in any direction in the medium is assumed to be the same as the time-wise variation of the average intensity at the same point as an approximation for the application of the method. The transient transmittance and reflectance of the medium are evaluated for various values of the optical thickness, scattering albedo and pulse duration. The results are in agreement with those available in the literature. It is demonstrated that the method is relatively simple to implement and yields accurate results.


Application of the H-N method to the critical slab problem for reflecting boundary conditions
Tureci, RG; Gulecyuz, MC; Kaskas, A; Tezcan, C (Elsevier BV, 2004-11-01)
The recently developed H-N method is used to solve the critical slab problem for a slab which is surrounded by a reflector. In the special case: for R = 0 (the reflection coefficient) the problem reduces to the one under vacuum boundary conditions. It is shown that the method is concise and leads to fast converging numerical results. The presented numerical results are compared with the data available in literature.
Performance of banded SLW-1 in presence of non-gray walls and particles in fluidized bed combustors
Yaşar, Mehmet Soner; Selçuk, Nevin; Külah, Görkem (Elsevier BV, 2020-12-01)
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. Spectral parameters of banded SLW-1 are estimated by the approach based on two emissivities calculated at two different path length...
Tunable surface plasmon resonance on an elastomeric substrate
Olcum, Selim; Kocabas, Askin; Ertaş, Gülay; Atalar, Abdullah; Aydinli, Atilla (The Optical Society, 2009-05-11)
In this study, we demonstrate that periods of metallic gratings on elastomeric substrates can be tuned with external strain and hence are found to control the resonance condition of surface plasmon polaritons. We have excited the plasmon resonance on the elastomeric grating coated with gold and silver. The grating period is increased up to 25% by applying an external mechanical strain. The tunability of the elastomeric substrate provides the opportunity to use such gratings as efficient surface enhanced Ram...
Development of sensitive analytical methods for the determination of thallium at trace levels by slotted quartz tube flame atomic absorption spectrometry
Ari, Betul; BAKIRDERE, Sezgin; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
A simple, sensitive and economical technique is needed for the determination of thallium and this study demonstrates the different analytical strategies were developed using atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS). In order to improve the sensitivity of flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS), a basic slotted quartz tube (SQT) was used for the thallium determination. In the first strategy, mixing propanol (100 mu L) and Tl standard solution (500 mu L) under the optimum conditions, namely solvent assisted S...
Pressure dependence of the Raman frequencies for the translational mode in ammonia solid II
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Elsevier BV, 2006-12-01)
We study here the translational mode of the ammonia solid II near the melting point by calculating its Raman frequencies as a function of pressure for the fixed temperatures of 230.4, 263.4 and 297.5 K. We perform this calculation of the Raman frequencies using the volume data by means of our Gruneisen relation. The Raman frequency shifts as the volume changes with the pressure, exhibit an anomalous behaviour near the melting point in the ammonia solid II.
