Models of radiative transfer in furnaces
- 140 Downloads
Absolute rigor in the treatment of radiative transfer in furnaces is probably an unattainable goal. The engineer's problem is to choose an idealization — a mathematical model — which is consistent with the accuracy desired and/or the time available for the design. The latitude of choice is in continuous process of being widened, the objectives being the inclusion of more complete allowance for reality and — sometimes only, alas — a simplification of method. To illustrate some of the principles of radiative transfer as well as the range of models becoming available, a single furnace cross section, more or less typical, will be chosen for application of several models.
