Abstract

"The purpose of this study is to determine the radiant heat transfer in rectangular configurations and construct a general computer program. Two specific cases are studied in this work. The first case is a rectangular duct with openings at each end. The duct is separated into two sections which are called the source and the sink respectively. A linear temperature profile is imposed on the source section. The energy loss of both the source and the sink is investigated. The second case is a complete rectangular enclosure. The two end plates are called the source and the sink respectively. A linear temperature profile is imposed on the duct like section between the two plates. The energy loss of both the source and the sink is investigated. The method of analysis is Gebhart's unified method. The computer programs are as generalized as possible. Each program contains two main parts: (A) The evaluation of the configuration factors between any two surfaces in the enclosure. (B) The evaluation of the radiant energy loss of the source and the sink"--Abstract, page ii.
