1 - 2 of 2 results for: ME 352A: Radiative Heat Transfer

ME 352A: Radiative Heat Transfer

The fundamentals of thermal radiation heat transfer; blackbody radiation laws; radiative properties of non-black surfaces; analysis of radiative exchange between surfaces and in enclosures; combined radiation, conduction, and convection; radiative transfer in absorbing, emitting, and scattering media. Advanced material for students with interests in heat transfer, as applied in high-temperature energy conversion systems. Take 352B,C for depth in heat transfer. Prerequisites: graduate standing and undergraduate course in heat transfer. Recommended: computer skills.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

ME 472: Computational Modeling of Radiative Transfer

Overview of physical modeling and computational methods for radiation heat transfer in participating media. Review of surface transfer. Radiation hydrodynamics and the radiative transfer equation. Constitutive relations for transport coefficients of participating media. Formal solution and one-dimensional transfer. Moment methods: diffusion and spherical harmonics. The discrete ordinates method: spatial and angular discretization, false scattering and ray effects, the finite volume method, parallelization. Monte Carlo ray tracing: ray tracing, Monte Carlo simulations, surface transfer, transfer in participating media, variance reduction techniques, parallelization. Additional topics covered time permitting: spectral modeling, collimated sources, transient radiative transfer, reverse ray-tracing. Pre-requisites: ME 300C or equivalent; STATS 116 or equivalent; undergraduate heat transfer; ME 352A strongly recommended but not required.
