Abstract

Thermal stresses in a partially absorbing brittle ceramic plate asymmetrically heated by radiation and cooled by convection on the same surface with finite and infinite heat transfer coefficients are analyzed. Comparison of the results from this study with those obtained in Part I, where the plate is subjected to radiation heating in the front surface and cooled by convection at the rear surface, indicates that the magnitudes of the maximum steady‐state tensile thermal stresses are nearly identical. Significant differences are found in the transient thermal stresses and the temperature distribution. The relative temperature levels in the present case are found to be significantly lower than those obtained in Part I. Implications of these results to the design and operation of engineering structures such as concentrated solar receivers are discussed.
