THERMAL RADIATION FROM NONISOTHERMAL PARTICLES IN COMBINED HEAT TRANSFER PROBLEMS
Following from: Combined heat transfer by radiation, conduction, and convection; Thermal radiation from nonisothermal spherical particles
Leading to: Radiation from semitransparent oxide particles in thermal spraying; Radiative cooling and solidification of core melt droplets
In analyzing radiation heat transfer in disperse systems containing small particles, a single particle is usually considered to be isothermal. This assumption greatly simplifies the calculation of the thermal radiation of the particle (Dombrovsky, 1996; Modest, 2003; Viskanta, 2005). At the same time, in the case of intensive heating or cooling, the temperature difference between the center and the surface of the particle may be considerable. This can be realized not only in the case of fast heating of solid or liquid particles by laser or concentrated solar radiation (Pendleton, 1985; Park and Armstrong, 1989; Tuntomo and Tien, 1992; Qiu et al., 1995; Astafieva and Prishivalko, 1998; Dombrovsky and Lipiński, 2007), but also in some other heat transfer problems. One example is the known problem of steam explosion due to thermal interaction of core melt droplets with ambient water during a hypothetical severe accident in light water nuclear reactors (Fletcher, 1995; Theofanous, 1995; Berthoud, 2000). Another example is the problem of oxide particles heating and melting in plasma spraying (Pfender and Chang, 1998; Moreau, 1998; Fincke et al., 2001; Fauchais, 2004; Streibl et al., 2006; Fauchais et al., 2006). In both cases, the temperature difference between the center and the surface of the particle cannot be ignored, and one needs calculations of thermal radiation from nonisothermal particles.
Thermal radiation of a nonisothermal particle is an especially interesting problem for particles of a weakly absorbing material (in particular, for metal oxide particles). The point is that materials that are semitransparent in the infrared spectral range are usually characterized by low thermal conductivity. As a result, one can expect a comparatively large temperature difference between the center and the surface of the particle. On the other hand, in the case of a weak absorption, the solution to the problem is expected to be more complicated because of the possible considerable contribution of radiation emitted from the central core of the particle.
In the case of a large spherical particle with a spherically symmetric temperature field, one can describe the radiation heat transfer by use of an MDP_{0} approximation, as discussed in the article Thermal radiation from nonisothermal spherical particles. This approach, suggested first by Dombrovsky (1998), was then studied in the greatest detail in other papers by Dombrovsky (1999, 2000a,b, 2002, 2004a,b). Following the recent lecture by Dombrovsky (2007), we present the computational model for calculating radiative-conductive heat transfer in nonisothermal spherical particles, and give examples of the model application to the above-mentioned engineering problems. We do not consider the case of a nonsymmetric temperature field in the particle, which may be important for some applied problems. A novel method for solving this problem has been suggested recently by Liu (2004). The method is based on a Monte Carlo ray-tracing technique.
In the MDP_{0} approximation, we have the following boundary value problem:
(1a) |
(1b) |
where the variable radiation diffusion coefficient is
(2) |
The spectral radiation flux from the particle and the spectral radiation power inside the particle are calculated as follows:
(3) |
The above boundary value problem is much simpler than the radiative transfer formulation based on a combination of ray tracing and zonal methods developed by Liu et al. (2002) for the same transient radiation-conduction problem in a semitransparent spherical particle.
