Recently a new experimental set-up for measuring the directional spectral emittance has been developed. Both sides of packed opaque spheres are simultaneously heated with identical power laser beams 10.6 μm) and the isothermal condition in the medium is assumed. In this paper we consider the coupled conduction-radiation equations to investigate the effect of the temperature nonuniformity on the calculated value of the emittance and to verify if the isothermal assumption is valid. Moreover, the sensitivity of the emittance and the temperature profile to the values of parameters (such as the porosity, the face temperatures, and the particle hemispherical reflectivity, etc.) is studied.
