RADCON

improved radiation and convection


Home Products RADCON examples


  Use

Radiation
  • Based on view factors between mesh surfaces
  • Non-linear temperature dependency
  • Includes surface emissivities of materials
Convection
  • Empirical formulas based on enclosure measures, heat flow direction (horizontal, upward, downward), temperature differences, in line with EN ISO standards
  • Non-linearity by adaptive recalculation of convective heat transfer coefficients

 

Implementation
  • Enclosed air space with known heating power and unknown air temperature
  • Enclosed air space with known air temperature and unknown heating power
  • Environment with known air temperature and known radiation temperature
