The Multiple Absorption Coefficient Zonal Method (MACZM), an Efficient Computational Approach for the Analysis of Radiative Heat Transfer in Multidimensional Inhomogeneous Nongray Media

Walter W. Yuen
2006 Numerical Heat Transfer, Part B Fundamentals  
The formulation of a multiple absorption coefficient zonal method (MACZM) is presented. The concept of generic exchange factors (GEF) is introduced. Utilizing the GEF concept, MACZM is shown to be effective in simulating accurately the physics of radiative exchange in multi-dimensional inhomogeneous non-gray media. The method can be directly applied to a fine-grid finite-difference or finite-element computation. It is thus suitable for direction implementation in an existing CFD code for
