We are interested in conductive and radiative transfer of energy in the core of gas cooled reactors. Two scales characterize the problem: macroscopic and microscopic. We want to consider the domain like an equivalent homogenous medium. So we use homogenization theory to compute the effective macroscopic properties which take into account the microscopic structure. We first present a full mathematical study of a simpler conduction problem with non linear boundary condition and its simulation… CONTINUE READING
