RADIATIVE TRANSFER IN LAMINAR FLAMES
Following from: Radiative transfer in combustion systems; Combustion phenomena affected by radiation
Leading to: Radiative transfer in turbulent flames; Radiative transfer in combustion chambers; Radiative transfer in two-phase combustion; Thermal radiation in unwanted fires
The role of radiation in laminar and turbulent flames has recently been reviewed (Chan, 2005; Viskanta 2005), and computational methods for solving the RTE in combustion systems have been discussed (Viskanta, 2008). These methods allow one to simulate chemically reacting flow and heat transfer in multidimensional combustion systems.
In the vast majority of fundamental flame studies, radiation has been neglected, partly because in many instances radiation plays only a secondary role and partly also because the accounting for thermal radiation is a difficult task. Radiation from flames has also been thought to be important only in furnaces and in fires of suf ...
