Inside industrial furnaces and combustion chambers, energy is essentially exchanged by radiation. It is through the same mechanism that the energy emitted by the Sun spreads through different media to reach the Earth. Developing a sound understanding of the laws underlying energy exchanges by radiation is therefore essential, not only for establishing design equations for industrial equipment, but also for an optimal harvesting of solar energy and a better understanding of climate change phenomena such as the greenhouse effect. Energy Transfers by Radiation establishes the basic laws and equations which support the quantification of energy fluxes transferred between surfaces for situations similar to those usually encountered in industrial processes or in solar energy applications.

“True strength is that which radiates through knowledge”.
Umbilical Limbo (1925)
For several years, I have cherished the wish of devoting enough time to the writing of a series of books on energy engineering. The reason is simple: for having practiced for years teaching as well as consulting in different areas ranging from energy planning to rational use of energy and renewable energies, I have always noted the lack of formal documentation in these fields to constitute a complete and coherent source of reference, both as a tool for teaching to be used by engineering professors and as a source of information summarizing, for engineering students and practicing engineers, the basic principles and the founding mechanisms of energy and mass transfers leading to calculation methods and design techniques.
But between the teaching and research tasks (first as a teaching assistant at the University of California and later as a professor at the École des mines de Rabat, Morocco) and the consulting and management endeavors conducted in the private and in the public sectors, this wish remained for more than twenty years in my long list of priorities, without having the possibility to make its way up to the top. Only providence was able to unleash the constraints and provide enough time to achieve a lifetime objective.
This led to a series consisting of nine volumes:
: Energy and Mass Transfers;
: Energy Transfers by Conduction;
:Energy Transfers by Convection;
4: Energy Transfers by Radiation;
: Mass Transfers and Physical Data Estimation;
: Design and Calculation of Heat Exchangers;
Solar Thermal Engineering;
: Solar Photovoltaic Energy Engineering;
Rational Energy Use Engineering.
The present book is the fourth volume of this series. It concerns the study of radiation heat transfer.
As we will see, radiation is one of the most significant modes of energy transfer. Even in outer space, this mode serves to convey solar radiation and thus provide the energy necessary for life on Earth. Closely linked to electromagnetic wave transfer, radiation obeys specific rules and equations that have numerous applications in engineering.
A series of exercises is presented at the end of this document, aimed at enabling students to implement the calculation techniques specific to radiation transfer as rapidly as possible. These exercises are designed to correspond as closely as possible to real-life situations occurring in industrial practice or everyday life.
Whilst conduction and convection both represent significant modes of heat transfer in industrial equipment, radiation can be, under certain conditions, the dominant mode. This is particularly the case for heat exchange occurring in industrial furnaces and in combustion chambers.
It is also thanks to thermal radiation that the energy emitted by the Sun propagates through different media before reaching the Earth, passing through interstellar spaces comprising the extremely diffuse gases and dust of the Milky Way, the interastral voids, and the Earth’s atmosphere.
Yet transfer by radiation is characterized by an essential specific feature that differentiates it from conduction and convection. Indeed, as we saw in Volume 1 of this series, heat transfer by radiation can occur between bodies, at a distance, even without a “support medium” to convey energy. In reality, in this energy transfer, heat can even be exchanged between surfaces separated by vacuum. Of course, radiation can also take place between surfaces separated by air or by any homogeneous or non-homogeneous medium.
This energy transfer mode can therefore occur without the need for either contact-continuity (as with conduction), or a carrier fluid (as with convection). In actual fact, this characteristic is inextricably linked to the very nature of the phenomena governing radiation heat transfer and, above all, to the very essence of radiant energy. As we will demonstrate in Chapter 1, radiant energy is essentially wave-based in nature. It is generated through the transfer of electromagnetic waves between surfaces. Given that waves transport photons, radiant energy is also corpuscular in nature.
This volume aims at analyzing in detail the basics of energy transfer by radiation, according to the perspective of determining design equations for industrial equipment such as furnaces, boiler heaters, etc. This analysis uses a set of parameters that are specific to this energy transfer mode. These parameters are presented in Chapter 2 of the present volume.
Moreover, as we will see in Chapter 3, the study of radiation of matter is greatly facilitated by the introduction of a virtual component having an ideal radiative behavior. This component is referred to as a black body, the radiation of which is entirely governed by laws such as Planck’s law, the Stefan-Boltzmann law or the Wien laws.
In reality, introducing the black body constitutes a tool enabling the studying of nonvirtual, nonideal real bodies. Indeed radiation of any real surface is studied by linking it to that of the ideal black body. This is accomplished through the introduction of a specific parameter, emissivity (Chapter 4); which is defined as the ratio between the energy radiated by a real surface at a given temperature divided by the energy which would be emitted by a black body under the same temperature.
The different parameters defined in chapters 2 to 4 make it possible to analyze radiative energy transfers between surfaces separated by a transparent medium (Chapter 5).
Moreover, radiative energy exchange between surfaces depends on the geometric positions occupied by these surfaces in space. This specific feature is taken into account using angle factors, whose practical calculation methods are covered in Chapter 6.
In practical engineering calculations, it is sometimes justified to assume that some surfaces have a black body behavior. It is in this perspective that Chapter 7 is reserved for energy balances for radiations between black surfaces.
It is necessary however, to underline that the “black body assumption” does not hold for all surfaces. Those surfaces which cannot be assumed to be black are called gray surfaces. Radiative energy balances between gray surfaces represent therefore most of the practical situations encountered in engineering calculations. These cases are analyzed in Chapter 8.
From a computational point of view, radiative energy balances often lead to large systems of equations to be resolved. This can be rather complicated when more than two surfaces are involved. But the introduction of electrical analogs (see Chapter 9) can lead to easier ways of resolution.
In most practical situations, we wish to maximize energy transfer between surfaces. But in certain cases, we may wish to reduce the transfers by radiation between surfaces. This is for example the case when you try to reduce energy input to a building from its glazing. This task is generally accomplished by introducing filters. Chapter 10 shows that interposing filters between surfaces can lead to significant reductions in the energy exchanged.
On a different note, in furnaces and boilers we often encounter energy transfer by radiation between surfaces which are separated by non-transparent media. Indeed, the latter are often charged with molecules of carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O) and traces of SO2, NOx and unburned hydrocarbons. Under these conditions (see Chapter 11), the medium contributes to the exchange by absorbing a portion of the radiation and by reflecting another portion.
Lastly, in order to help the reader assimilate the calculation methods presented in this book, Chapter 12 is devoted to a series of practical exercises and to the presentation of their solutions; meanwhile the physical data required for the calculations are grouped together in the Appendix (database).
The origin of radiation is almost as old as the history of the creation of matter. Its essence finds itself combined with that of matter and electromagnetic waves originating far back in the Big Bang. Indeed, according to the Big Bang model, presented in the form of a light-hearted summary in a reader-friendly article (Lachiezo-Rey, 2016), the first particles (quarks) assembled to form protons and neutrons. Then, this assembly process continued to form the first atomic nuclei. This is known as primordial nucleosynthesis.
It enabled the development of the simplest atomic nuclei: hydrogen (1 proton), deuterium (proton + 1 neutron), helium (2 protons + 2 neutrons) and lithium (3 protons and 4 neutrons). All other nuclei known to us today as constituting matter would be formed later.
In ionized gas state, this matter emits electromagnetic waves that will be received by the rest of the matter. These energy exchanges between matter and electromagnetic waves form the basis of processes that allowed other nuclei to develop, resulting in the composition of matter that we know today.
The origin of radiation is thus found confined in infinitesimal matter.
The work conducted by Max Planck (1858–1947), Niels Bohr (1885–1962) and Albert Einstein offers a model that allows us to trace back to the corpuscular origin of radiation. Indeed, interactions between radiation and matter, first demonstrated by Max Planck, showed that exchanges between electromagnetic radiation and matter can only occur in bundles, having specific energies that depend on the matter considered. He referred to these bundles as quanta and so quantum mechanics was born.
Albert Einstein would later conclude that these quanta are carried by particles: photons. He also asserted that these photons move at the speed of light and that they convey energy which is characterized by a wave of length λ, well defined by the matter considered.
Niels Bohr’s atomic model came to complete this representation of radiation-matter interactions.
In Bohr’s model, an atom can only exist in certain energy states. Each of these states is defined by a specifically-determined energy level. The transition from an initial state, defined by energy level Ei, to a final state (EF) can only take place with a radiation of energy ER, such that:
Thus (see Figure 1.1), the transition of an atom from an excited state (EE) to a less excited state (EM) leads to the emission of a photon, the energy (hν) of which is such that:
Figure 1.1.Radiation emission by de-excitation of an atom. For a color version of this figure, see www.iste.co.uk/benallou/energy4.zip
Conversely, the absorption of a photon of energy hν by an atom that is at initial energy level, Ei, returns it to an excited state, EE, such that (see Figure 1.2):
Figure 1.2.Excitation of an atom by absorption of a photon. For a color version of this figure, see www.iste.co.uk/benallou/energy4.zip
Thus, the quantum model shows that:
– When matter is subject to electromagnetic radiation (such as solar radiation), and when the radiation wavelength corresponds to the absorbable quanta, then the matter can be excited. Absorption of this energy by the matter induces a switching to a more excited state. On an atomic scale, the latter can be reflected by a change in the matter energy level. Yet, on the scale of several atoms grouped into a molecule, excitation is reflected by vibrations-translations of the atoms making up the molecular structure, thus leading to an increase in the matter temperature.
– Conversely, when the matter is in an excited state (due to heating or electrical discharge, for example), and when this matter can exist in a lower energy level, then the energy of the excited state can decay, generating a quantum, the wavelength of which is compatible with the lower energy levels of the matter considered. In other words, the matter can emit electromagnetic radiation by placing itself at a more stable energy level.
The following illustrations demonstrate the different applications of this phenomenon, which enable heating and the generation of lighting for example.
Neon tubes are used in illuminated signs. They usually contain neon in the form of low-pressure gas. The tubes generally comprise two electrodes, one on each edge.
When energized, these electrodes generate a potential difference that results in the circulation of electrons within the gas. The electrons then transfer energy to the neon atoms, placing them in a higher energy state. Then, as they de-excite, the neon atoms emit a red light.
Figure 1.3 represents the different energy sta es of the neon atom.
