    Radiation Exchange Between Real Surfaces Based on Configuration Factor

    Various Methods for 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 […]

    Shape Factor Algebra for Radiation Exchange Between Surfaces

    Shape Factor Algebra for Radiation Exchange Between Surfaces 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 […]
