Example text

The particular radiation components can differ depending on their temperature. In energetic consideration of radiation, the temperature of such components is not distinguished and the total radiation (emission and reflected radiation) is called the radiosity, J. 8) For a blackbody, which does not reflect radiation, the radiosity equals the emission (J = E). Usually the general term radiation can mean either emission or radiosity. The exchange of radiation energy can occur between surfaces of different size and configuration.

Radiation of wavelength 10–3 m, can be produced either by microwave techniques (microwave oscillators) or by infrared techniques (incandescent sources). All these waves are electromagnetic and propagate with the same speed c 0 in a vacuum. The properties of radiation depend on their wavelengths. From the viewpoint of heat transfer, most essential are the rays that, when absorbed by bodies, cause a noticeable increase of energy of these bodies. The rays that indicate such properties at practical temperature levels are called thermal radiation.

In calculations of the exchange between any two surfaces n and m, generally only a part of the radiation from surface n arrives at surface m. 9) The factor value can be within the range from 0 to 1. , the density of radiosity is constant at every point of the respective surfaces, then the factor depends only on the location of both the surfaces in space and is sometimes called the view factor. However, if j is not the same at any point of the considered surface area A, then the radiosity density has to be considered locally ( j = dJ/dA) as will be discussed later.
