Abstract

The paper develops a procedure for the theoretical-experimental calculation of the solar absorption coefficient of metallic layers under the action of a short flash of concentrated solar energy. The knowledge of this coefficient is relevant when the solar thermal processing is used to make a quench in a thin superficial layer of metallic slabs. The experimental data of temperature of the sample are obtained using the SURFSOL experimental device at SOLFACE (High Flux Solar Facilities for Europe), France. In particular, the sensors of temperature are located on its back side as the solar radiation impinges the front irradiated one. The theoretical data are obtained solving the nonlinear inverse transient heat conduction problem using the IHCP1D software based on the well-known function specification method (FSM). It gives transient surface heat fluxes as well as temperatures on the irradiated side of the sample using internal temperature histories. Then a lumped modeling accounts for the heat diffusion in the radial direction and re-calculates the heat fluxes. Once temperatures and heat flows are known, an estimate of the solar absorption coefficient of the metallic layer (during the flash solar heating process) may be obtained as a function of temperature (AISI 316L steel).
