Toward An Accurate Understanding Of Radiative Heat Transfer In Advanced Nuclear Reactors

Heat transfer is governed by three mechanisms: conduction, convection, and thermal radiation. Conventionally, thermal radiation is often neglected in heat transfer analyses since, under most practical circumstances, its contribution is negligible compared to that of conduction or convection. However, at times, thermal radiation can be a significant or even predominant form of heat transfer, such
