This work presents further development and validation of the Discrete Ordinates Model for thermal radiation implemented in OpenFOAM® for application to packed beds of particles. The radiation model is an important part of a more comprehensive model for simulating the thermochemical conversion of the discrete phase (here for instance wet biomass particles). The comprehensive Eulerian-Lagrangian model is part of a three-dimensional, time-resolved simulation of the essential chemical and physical processes occurring within and in-between particles in a moving bed.

For the thermal treatment of solid particles, convective and radiative heat transfer couple the energy exchange between the reactor wall, gas- and disperse phase. The original implementation of the finite volume Discrete Ordinate Model (fvDOM) present in OpenFOAM® is valid for a dilute particulate phase and neglects the effect of local opacity due to the existence of individual particles. In the present application, a dense-packed bed of the particulate phase exists in the reactor and, therefore, this direction-based radiation model is adjusted for a computational cell with arbitrary particle volume fractions.
