Heterogeneous thermochemical decomposition of a semi-transparent particle under high-flux irradiation: uniform versus non-uniform irradiation

Ebner, P. P; Lipinski, Wojciech


The effects of a semi-transparent reacting particle irradiation are analysed using a transient combined heat transfer model. Direct uniform irradiation is found to be favourable for particle heating and decomposition, decreasing the total reaction time by a factor of 3.3 as compared to that for non-uniform irradiation. In both cases heat transfer from the surface to the reaction zone is the process limiting mechanism.
