Default Radiation and View Faktors

Do you have any sort of information related to implementation of radiation heat transfer using the View Faktor Method? I am quite familiar with the basics of radiation so I don´t need any beginer information. What I need is some information about how a code has to be written or even better some code, that I can study. Thanks in Advance

Dr. Tsimento,

for the basics have a look to

- Hottel H, Sarofim A. Radiative Transfer, McGraw-Hill (1967).

If you understand german have a look on:

- Heilos A., Leuckel W., Bittner H. Berechnung der Temperaturverteilung in Rollenöfen zur Vorhersage der thermischen NOx-Bildung., Gaswärme International, 43, Heft 9, S. 408-418, (1994) -> description about how to apply the method in a more efficient way for practical purposes.

very soon you will find that the accurate determination of view factors plays a key role. Have a look on:

- Becker H. A Mathematical Solution for Gas to Surface Radiative Exchange Area for a Rectangular ..., Journal of heat transfer Vol 99, May 1977 p 203-207 - Emery A, Johannson O, Lobo M., Abrous A., A Comparative Study of Methods for Computing the Diffuse Radiation Viewfactors for Complex Structures, Journal of heat transfer, Vol 113 May 1991 - Murty C, Murty B., Significance of exchange area adjustment in zone modelling, Int. J Heat Mass Transfer Vol 34, No2, pp 499-503 (1991)

try they have developed a finite-volume-program (crysvun). Try to get the PhD-Thesis of M. Kurz (see also the references on the webside)
