Radiation Heat Transfer Modelling with Computational Fluid Dynamics
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after April 6, 2022
Radiation Heat Transfer Modelling with Computational Fluid Dynamics serves as a reference for principles of thermal radiation and its modelling in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations.
Including strategies for combining CFD and thermal radiation, the book covers computational techniques for solving the Radiative Transfer Equation, the strengths and weaknesses thereof, boundary and initial conditions, and relevant guidelines. Describing the strategic planning of a typical project, it includes spectroscopic properties of gases, some particulates, and porous media.
The book is intended for researchers and professionals who simulate problems that involve fluid flow and heat transfer with thermal radiation.

Dr. Yehuda Sinai qualified in Mechanical Engineering at Witwatersrand University (South Africa) in 1968. He obtained a PhD in Aerodynamics at Cranfield University in 1975, on non-equilibrium molecular relaxation effects in sonic booms. After a spell in academia, working on acoustics and two-phase fluid-structure vibrations, on contract for the US Navy and the British Admiralty, he spent 10 years at NNC (National Nuclear Corporation Ltd.), principally on mathematical modelling of nuclear safety thermal-hydraulics. He joined AEA Technology in 1992, where he specialised in CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) modelling in the safety sphere, and became CFD Project Manager for Fire, Safety, HVAC and Environment. This role continued after the acquisition of AEA’s CFD operation by ANSYS Inc. in 2003. In July 2009, Yehuda left ANSYS and set up his own company, HeatAndFlow Consultancy Ltd., offering general modelling but with a focus on CFD tools. Dr. Sinai has authored and co-authored approximately 60 scientific papers in archival journals and conference proceedings and is the author of a chapter in a technical encyclopedia.
