Abstract

This paper presents a simple but realistic model of the interaction of radiative flux with convective transport in an absorbing, emitting, and scattering falling film. The analysis accounts for the spectral variations of the radiative intensities, emissions, reflections, refractions, scattering, and radiative properties. Such a model is required to design Direct Absorption Solar Receivers and to numerically evaluate their performance. Previous analyses in the literature have either neglected the flow field or have not considered scattering in the film and have assumed the properties to be spectrally constant. The present model is easy to understand and to numerically implement on the computer.
