How much more effective will a double layered heat shield (.1mm stainless steel outer shell (facing radiant heat source), .5 mm inner aluminum shell, and 4mm air gap) be at blocking thermal radiation then a single 2mm thick sheet of aluminum? (assume both heat shields are same size and in same environment.

Solution Summary

This solution discusses the effectiveness of blocking thermal heat with a single-heat shield or a double-layered heat shield (with an air gap). It is concluded that the double-layered heat shield with the air gap in between the layers of stainless steel and aluminum is extraordinarily effective in blocking the thermal heat.

Summarize SCALE

Hi,

Can you summarize SCALE and what type of results we would get from putting in various reactor codes?
I am looking for 500-1000 original words.
