Experimental validation of the multiple absorption coefficient zonal method (MACZM) in a dynamic modeling of a steel reheating furnace

Abstract : this work, the multiple absorption coefficient zonal method (MACZM) is being implemented and validated numerically. The method is demonstrated to be highly suitable for the analysis of radiative heat transfer in multidimensional inhomogeneous non-grey media. A uniform rectangular fine grid is considered and small CPU time is achieved. This makes the method of great interest for transient applications. The validity of the method is demonstrated in two steps. First, cases with simple geometry are considered and results are compared to results generated by direct numerical integration. Results are also generated by MODRAY, which is a source project based on an original method called the flux-planes approximation, and are shown to be equally accurate. Second, the case of a steel reheating furnace is considered. In a previous work, the furnace heat balance and temperature profiles were simulated using a finite difference computation approach and radiative exchange factors generated by MODRAY. Experiments were performed and results generated by the model were found to be in good agreement with experimental data. The radiative exchange factors are now recalculated with MACZM. They are shown to be very close to those generated by MODRAY. The comparison of the two methods clearly shows that MACZM is much faster for the calculation of the volume-volume radiative exchange factors on a uniform rectangular grid.
