On the determination of the radiation shape factor of a system of two coaxial cylinders

  • V. T. Aleksandrov


Calculation of radiation shape factors is presented for a system of two coaxial cylinders of equal height. The shape factor for self-irradiation of the outer cylinder is plotted versus the ratio of the diameters of the inner and outer cylinders for various ratios of the outer cylinder diameter to its height. Similar plots are also presented for the shape factors for radiation from the outer cylinder to the inner one and from the inner cylinder to the bases. The maximum error in the predicted shape factors does not exceed 7 percent.
