 April 21, 1999, 08:18 Radiation in diesel engines #1 Chrys Correa Guest   Posts: n/a Hi! Does anyone have any experience with modeling radiation heat transfer in diesel engines?? Specifically, any comments regarding the following points will be appreciated: 1) The numerical method used to solve the RTE 2) The radiative properties of the combustion gases and soot (is the gray gas assumption justified or is the spectral dependence important?) 3) Is the optically thin assumption justified? Any references will be welcomed. Thanks. Chrys

Modest, Radiative Heat Transfer, Mc Graw Hill, Inc,1993 http://michelle.me.psu.edu/ (2) Smith et al.& Leckner total emissivity correlations for the calculation of absorbtion coefficient of the medium Ref: T.F Smith, Z.F. Shen, J. N. Friedman, Evaluation of Coefficients for the weighted Sum of gray gases model, J. Heat Transfer, vol 104,1982. B. Leckner, Spectral and total emissivity of water vapor and carbon dioxide, combustion ans Flame, vol. 19,1972. Spectral dependency is important but it takes too much timein CFD applications. So total emissivity correlations are used in CFD applications. Soot: Magnussen, B.F. and Hjertager, B.H.
