About

Since September 1, 2017 I am working mainly on the 18-month EU fellowship project RAD-FIRE concerning the radiative transfer modelling in fire suppression and similar engineering problems. This is a joint study in cooperation with my colleagues at the Kingston University (London). I am currently working on a new concept of a solar probe shielding from intense thermal radiation of the sun. Description: A cloud of micron-sized paricles generated during ablation of a special composite material is considered as a promising self-regulating protection from solar thermal radiation. A transent conjugate heat transfer problem for the composite materials of thermal protection is combined with calculations of particle motion due to a drag force and light pressure. Partial evaporation of particles is taken into account. The spectral radiative transfer problem in a non-uniform cloud of polydisperse Mie particles is a key part of the theoretical model.
