Performance of banded SLW-1 in presence of non-gray walls and particles in fluidized bed combustors

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 lengths L-1 and L-2 . The predictive accuracy of banded SLW-1 model is tested by comparing its incident wall heat flux and source term predictions with measurements and predictions of banded SLW. The results indicate that band-wise selection of L-1 and L-2 based on spectrally averaged mean beam length provides the most accurate radiative heat transfer predictions. Furthermore, based on a sensitivity analysis on the test rig under consideration, utilization of path lengths L-1 and L-2 which are 0.10 and 1.10 times of the spectrally dependent mean beam length is found to yield the best radiative heat transfer predictions in terms of accuracy. Incident heat flux and source term predictions of banded SLW-1 are found to be in reasonable agreement with those of banded SLW under both air and oxy-fired conditions. Furthermore, CPU time requirement of banded SLW-1 is about 20-25 times lower than that of banded SLW. With the introduction of fly ash recycling, particle load increases an order of magnitude leading to further improvement in the accuracy of banded SLW-1. On the other hand, gray wall assumption leads to accurate radiative heat flux predictions whereas this assumption leads to considerable inaccuracies in the source term predictions in the upper region of freeboard. However, those inaccuracies become insignificant with the introduction of fly ash recycling. Application of the model to different wall conditions common in the industry indicates that discrepancies between the source term predictions of gray and non-gray cold water wall and those of gray and non-gray cold slag covered water wall are insignificant for the combustion test rig under consideration which is attributed to the combined effects of low wall temperatures and similar gray and non-gray wall emissivities.

Spectroscopic measurements of electron temperature and electron density in electron beam plasma generator based on collisional radiative model
Goktas, H.; Demir, A.; Kacar, E.; Hegazy, H.; Turan, Raşit; Oke, G.; Seyhan, A. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
The current work describes a spectroscopic method for determining the electron temperature and electron density in an electron beam generator using argon spectral lines based on a collisional radiative model. Neutral and first-ionized Ar lines emitted from the electron beam generator are studied experimentally. A collisional radiative code was developed to simulate the Ar (I) and Ar (II) spectral emission and to compare the results with the experimental data for electron density and temperature determinatio...
Analysis of the Raman intensities near the phase transitions in ammonium halides
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Elsevier BV, 2008-12-01)
This study concentrates on the temperature dependence of the Raman intensities for the lattice modes in ammonium halides (NH4Cl and NH4Br) close to phase transitions, We predict their intensities using the results of a shell model for the Raman polarizability within the framework of an Ising pseudospin-phonon coupled model.
A Monte Carlo method to solve for radiative effective thermal conductivity for particle beds of various solid fractions and emissivities
Johnson, Evan; Tarı, İlker; Baker, Derek Keıth (Elsevier BV, 2020-07-01)
A method is described to find the effective thermal conductivity due to radiation (k(rad)) for groups of particles at packed and less than packed states. Unlike most previous studies, the method does not rely on the assumption of a unit cell or absorption and scattering coefficients to derive k(rad). In this method, radiation is modeled with a 3D Monte Carlo ray tracing code, steady state particle temperatures are found with a particle-particle heat exchange simulation, and k(rad) is found with a comparison...
Multiphoton core ionization dynamics of polyatomic molecules
Toffolı, Danıele; Decleva, Piero (IOP Publishing, 2013-07-28)
The two-photon core ionization dynamics of gas-phase methane, carbon monoxide and nitrogen have been studied with a recent implementation of the lowest order perturbation theory in the framework of density functional theory and a multicentric basis set expansion of bound and scattering states. Ionization cross sections and angular asymmetry parameters have been calculated for the case of a single radiation beam and for both linear and circular light polarizations in the fixed nuclei approximation. Expected ...
Ground-state properties, vortices, and collective excitations in a two-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensate with gravitylike interatornic attraction
Keleş, Ahmet; Tanatar, B. (American Physical Society (APS), 2008-05-01)
We study the ground-state properties of a Bose-Einstein condensate with short-range repulsion and gravitylike 1 /r interatomic attraction in two-dimensions (2D). Using the variational approach we obtain the ground-state energy and analyze the stability of the condensate for a range of interaction strengths in 2D. We also determine the collective excitations at zero temperature using the time-dependent variational method. We analyze the properties of the Thomas-Fermi-gravity and gravity regimes, and we exami...
