    Radiation Exchange Between Real Surfaces

     Radiation Exchange Between Real Surfaces METHODS TO FIND RADIATION EXCHANGE BETWEEN GREY SURFACES There are two methods to find radiation exchange between grey bodies. (a) BASED ON CONFIGURATION FACTOR/INTERCHANGE FACTOR/EQUIVALENT EMISSIVITY BETWEEN TWO GREY BODIES – Shape factor for grey bodies is also called the Configuration factor/interchange factor/equivalent emissivity. It is represented for grey bodies by f12 […]

    Shape Factor Algebra for Radiation Exchange

    Shape Factor Algebra for Radiation Exchange  DEFINITION OF SHAPE FACTOR There is a factor called the SHAPE FACTOR (Fij) OR view factor or configuration factor or form factor or geometric factor which accounts for the orientation and geometry of the surfaces exchanging radiations. Shape factor F12 = ratio of radiations intercepted by surface 2 / […]
