Simulation of radiative heating of snow and ice coating
- 5 Downloads
Numerical simulation of thermal state was performed for semitransparent medium; the thermal state is formed under impact of incident radiation and convective heat transfer to the ambient medium. The model takes into account the heat transfer to the semi-infinite opaque substrate below the layer of semitransparent material. Computation was performed for governing parameters typical of snow and ice coating during winter period. Solving the radiative part of problem uses the modified average flux method. This method takes into account the dependence of optical properties on the wavelength of incident radiation, scattering, and reflective properties of the layer boundaries.
