Radiative transfer for particles in high temperature environments


Department of Mechanical Engineering

About the Project

Heat transfer to solid-phase particles is an important phenomenon for many flows of practical interest. Modelling will play a key role in the design of optimisation of these systems, however there is a need to adapt currently adopted models for calculating the heat transfer to the solid phase particles. Some of the challenges to the current approach is accounting for the irregular shapes of some particles, which can depart significantly from the ideally spherical assumption that is widely adopted, and accounting for the strong variations in scattering angles. Studies into investigating the impact of these shape irregularities and scattering directions on the radiative transfer to the particle and within the fluid domain, the dominant mode of heat transfer at high temperatures, are required to better represent these processes.
