Heat Transfer in a Parallel-Plate Enclosure with Graded-Index Coatings on its Walls

A numerical study on the heat transfer in the thermal barrier coatings and the substrates of a parallel-plate enclosure is carried out. Some of the thermal barrier coatings, such as ceramics, are semitransparent and are of interest for high-temperature applications where radiation effects are significant. The radiative transfer equations and the energy… CONTINUE READING
