Thermal Elastic Stress in Sodium Receiver Tubes

Logie, William; Pye, John; Coventry, Joseph


Bladed receivers use conventional receiver tube-banks rearranged into bladed structures to increase thermal and optical retention. This paper explores the impact of the blades upon the receiver’s convective losses for both windy and no-wind conditions. The modelling work suggests that the addition of blades increases convection levels but by acceptable amounts when compared to the reductions in radiative emissions.
