A simple procedure is developed for calculating the circumferential temperature distributions in tubes exposed to nonuniform radiation. Convection to the fluid in the tubes and circumferential conduction in the tube walls are accounted for, in addition to radiation. Convenient dimensionless quantities are introduced and used for the presentation of graphs which facilitate rapid calculation of metal temperatures for structural design purposes. A calculation procedure using these graphs and a sample calculation are appended.
