Summary

A parametric study was performed to examine the effects of isotropic scattering on the heat transfer in typical semitransparent thermal barrier coating on an opaque substrate. Some ceramic materials are semitransparent in the wavelength range where thermal radiation is important. Therefore, absorption, emission, and scattering of thermal radiation by the semitransparent layer and the emissivity of the substrate will affect the heat transfer and temperature in the layer. Scattering which depends on the structure of the semitransparent material can be used to increase the reflectivity of the layer and therefore decrease the heat transfer through the layer. A one dimensional model of a 1 mm thick semitransparent layer on a substrate was used in this study. The front of the semitransparent layer is heated by convection and radiation and the back of the substrate is cooled by radiation and convection. The coating is assumed to be semitransparent up to a cutoff wavelength and opaque at higher wavelengths. The absorption and scattering coefficient are constant over the wavelength range where the material is semitransparent. The absorption coefficient, scattering coefficients, width of the semitransparent band, and the bond coat emissivity are varied. Temperature profiles and heat flux through layers as a function of absorption and scattering coefficients are presented.
