A mathematical model was derived to calculate the IR reflection inside the annulus between two concentric cylindrical tubes, where the inner side of the outer cylinder is assumed to be coated with an IR reflected mirror. The mathematical model is implemented in a simulation code and experimentally validated. The experimental results of a system of two concentric cylindrical tubes operating with an IR reflected mirror on the inside of the outer cylinder are presented, and the results between the…
