An Assessment of Superposition of Free Convection and Surface Radiation Heat Transfer in a Square Enclosure
Thesis - University Access Only
Master of Science (MS)
Department / School
A computational study is conducted to evaluate the performance of superposing the pure convection and pure surface radiation mode results of local and total heat transfer rates in a differentially heated square enclosure with adiabatic top and bottom walls. Such superposed results are compared with a combined interacting free convection surface radiation model. For the specified conditions, generally, satisfactory agreement between the two predictions is established for enclosures with equal sidewall emissivities and black top and bottom surfaces. On the other hand, significant deviations are encountered in enclosures with distinctly different sidewall emissivities.
