Hi,

I have added the radiation module into reactingFoam and it seems to work fine.
My question now is how to use "greyMeanAbsorptionEmission" so that I can have absorption and emmission coefficients as a function of , say, CO2 massfraction.
As I understand the calculated species massfraction will be used since i am solving for CO2. Therfore I can give polynomial coefficients in a greyMeanAbsorptionEmissionCoeffs sub dictionary.
There seems also to be an option of defining the coefficients in a lookuptable . I do so far not have intentions of using this table but it seems that it must exist in order to use the class. The table should be located under constant/ and if it does not exist the solver exits with a fatal error
I have studied the source for the class but I run into trouble with the interpolationLookUpTable and cannot figure out what format the input file should be.

I think it should be of class dictionary, and it has to contain the keywords fields, output and value. But everything I try just fails

Anyone has an idea about this??

By the way I am using 1.6.x .

Any suggestions or hints would be highly welcomed.
Did anyone use this model before?

Hi again,

I managed to find a working format, which looks like this:

fields
1
(
{
N 1;
max 1.0;
min 0.0;
name apa;
}

)
;
output
1
(
{
name apa;
}
)
;
values
2
(
(0 0.0)
(1 0.0)
)
;

I am still very confused of what this does. But I am solving for the species of interest so I hope it does not influence anyhow. I also had to create a volScalarField called "ft" for it to work and "ft" needs to be registered with the other species and appearently solved for as well. well I just put it to zero in the entire field.

I now managed to get the absorptioncoefficient as a function of CO2. But I do not know if I can trust the results since I have the feeling that i have misunderstood something important here.

Could anyone shed some lights on this?

Hi Magnus,

I have encountered the same problem right now. I was wondering if you so far has fixed the problem, and give some info of how to define the SpeciesTable dictionary. By the way, I've also sent you a private message with more details.

Thanks
Sina

Guys,

Please take a look at fireFoam. It uses exactly what you are looking for, although there is no white paper explaining the code.

Regards,

Paulo

Can anyone explain the code for 'SpeciesTable' in case of grey mean absorption model used ?
