Abstract

This article deals with the implementation of the radiation element method (REM) with the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) to solve a combined mode transient conduction-radiation problem. Radiative information computed using the REM is provided to the LBM solver. The planar conducting-radiating participating medium is contained between diffuse gray boundaries, and the system may contain a volumetric heat generation source. Temperature and heat flux distributions in the medium are studied for different values of parameters such as the extinction coefficient, the scattering albedo, the conduction-radiation parameter, the emissivity of the boundaries, and the heat generation rate. To check the accuracy of the results, the problem is also solved using the finite-volume method (FVM) in conjunction with the LBM. In this case, the data for radiation field are calculated using the FVM. The REM has been found to be compatible with the LBM, and in all the cases, results of the LBM-REM and the LBM-FVM have been found to provide an excellent comparison.
