Qiu, Qirong, Liu, Shi, Teng, Jing, Yan, Yong (2015) A Two-stage Polynomial Method for Spectrum Emissivity Modeling. Energy Procedia, 66 . pp. 245-248. ISSN 1876-6102. (doi:10.1016/j.egypro.2015.02.042)


Spectral emissivity is a key in the temperature measurement by radiation methods, but not easy to determine in a combustion environment, due to the interrelated influence of temperature and wave length of the radiation. In multi-wavelength radiation thermometry, knowing the spectral emissivity of the material is a prerequisite. However in many circumstances such a property is a complex function of temperature and wavelength and reliable models are yet to be sought. In this study, a two stages partition low order polynomial fitting is proposed for multi-wavelength radiation thermometry. In the first stage a spectral emissivity model is established as a function of temperature; in the second stage a mathematical model is established to describe the dependence of the coefficients corresponding to the wavelength of the radiation. The new model is tested against the spectral emissivity data of tungsten, and good agreement was found with a maximum error of 0.64%
