 February 19, 2007, 12:24 Meaning of diffuse fraction,emissivity,absorption. #1 Ferdinando Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, i'm working with DO radiation in Fluent. I want to know better the meaning of "diffuse fraction","internal emissivity","absorption". If i have a UV lamp defined as wall that emitted radiation 500 W/m^2, how can i define a near wall as a mirror? which parameters i must set? i want a specular reflection, not absorption,not trasmissivity. Please help me. Thanks in advance.

The remaining fraction would be specularly reflected. Diffusely reflected energy= (diffuse fraction)*(1-internal emissivity)*incident radiation. Specularly reflected energy = (1-diffuse fraction)*(incident radiation). Internal emissivity: it is the emissivity of the wall that faces the computational domain (the cell zone). Absorption at the wall surface assumes that the absorptivity is equal to the emissivity. Internal emissivity value is therefore quintessential to model the absorption and diffuse reflection according to the equations: Absorbed energy = (diffuse frcation)*(internal emissivity)*(incident radiation). And diffusely reflected energy follows the equation above. Absorption: Explained above Basically the conservation equation of reflectance + transmittance + absorptance =1 should be respected. In case of an opaque wall, there is no transmittance and hence only absorption (which is modelled via internal emissivity) and reflection exists. Now, if the value of internal emissivity at an opaque wall is set to 0 (that would make the absorption to be 0 also), then all the incident energy at that wall is reflected. Now, again if the diffuse fraction value is put in as 0, this would then mean that all the incident radiation is reflected specularly like a mirror. So, in the radiation tab of the wall select: opaque wall + internal emissivity=0 + diffuse fraction = 0 this combination of parameters should basically mean a mirror like wall.
