Thermal Elastic Stress in Sodium Receiver Tubes

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


    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 receivers 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.
