 September 23, 2004, 21:06 Thermal radiation model selection and application #1 Jason Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links If I want to calculate the fire in a room, both wall surface and flame will result in radiative heat transfer, furthermore, walls will also absorb the heat it received from the flame radiation. Which model is good for this case? If I use "IMMERSOL" or "Radiosity" raidation model built in PHENICS, should I use the degree C temperature or absolute K temperature for the whole computation domain? what is the linking coefficient of TEM1 and T3 in the IMMERSOL model? thanks.

IMMERSOL may be suitable for fire simulation. TEM1 : the fluid temperature T3 : the radiation temperature IMMERSOL solves a heat-conduction type of equation expressed in terms of T3.

 September 27, 2004, 23:01 Re: Thermal radiation model selection and applicat #3 Jason Guest   Posts: n/a Dear Nuray Kayakol: Thanks for your message. According to an example of IMMERSOl radiation model online provided by PHOENICS, the linking coefficient of TEM1 and T3 is 1.0, what is the physical meaning of this coefficient? Should I use the aosolute temperature K for all the computation of heat transfer? thanks.

But there some extra informations: (1) T3 has no real physical meaning except inside solid bodies, when it is equal to solid temperature. (2) I think that the idea of T3 (T3 comes from T^3) is to use the idea of "diffusion" similar (but not the same) to Rosseland idea. And it is of great help in better connecting the radiative energy transported by fluids with the conducted energy inside the solids that are immersed in these fluids (here comes the name IMMERsed SOLids ). (3) Do you know that reference temperature that appears in PHOENICS menu under properties (I am not sure...)? If you use tref=273, you enter celsius temperatures and receives celsius temperature back. PHOENICS converts to kelvin internally. However, if you set tref=0, you must use kelvin scale. Hope this helps, Carlos

 September 29, 2004, 22:59 Re: Thermal radiation model selection and applicat #6 Jason Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks Nuray and Carlos. As Nuray mentioned, the solution of TEM1 and T3 equations are coupled together, does the user must specify the source term of TEM1 equation that is obtained from the radiative heat transfer solution of RTE? I presume it is implemented in the IMMERSOL model for solving the gas-solid boundaries. In my case, the solid-gas boundary exchange heat energy by radiation-convection and conduction. I appreciate your comments. -Jason

Howell, Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer, Hemisphere, 1992. M. F. Modest, Radiative Heat Transfer, McGraw-Hill, 1993. E.M. Sparrow and R.D. Cess, Radiation Heat Transfer, McGraw-Hill, 1978.

 November 18, 2005, 06:21 Re: Thermal radiation model selection and applicat #15 Nuray Kayakol Guest   Posts: n/a Discrete ordinates method (DOM) is widely accepted as right choice for optically thin media like combustion space. If the geometry is complex Finite Volume Method (FVM) which is one version of DOM, is widely used. As far as I know these models are not implemented in PHOENICS yet. INFORM features of PHOENICS may help you to implement them. It would be a nice work. A few years ago I used INFORM to implement six-flux model, which is an old radiation model. Why not for DOM or FVM? If your model is computationally expensive you can use IMMERSOL which gives plausible results when walls are not black. Just define your system I can help more.
