- ... A volumetric solar receiver with composite porous structure is proposed, where a porous foam with different pore parameters from that in the other region of receiver is placed in the inlet near-wall region. Thermal performance of the solar receiver is numerically investigated. The local thermal non-equilibrium model is utilized to represent the energy transport within the porous foam. Radiative tr ...
