Turbulence/radiation interaction is examined in order to provide better fundamental understanding of temporal aspects of radiative transfer in combustion systems. Two aspects of radiative transfer in a turbulent medium are considered in this paper. In the first, transfer of radiation along a path with turbulent concentration and temperature fluctuations is calculated for the time-mean irradiance at a combustion chamber wall due to random concentration of absorbing species and emission with Gaussian probability density functions. In the second, turbulence/radiation interaction and the effect of radiation transfer on the fully coupled structure and mean properties are assessed for an industrial natural gas-fired furnace. The results of calculations based on the approximate formulation utilized here show that the effects of turbulence/radiation interaction on combustion and flow properties is relatively small for a preheated methane-air mixture. The interaction is greater when the oxidant is cold and the flame is relatively long.
