The aim of this study is composed of two parts. One of them is to calculate the radiation heat flux and the other is to determine the overall heat transfer coefficient for the gas-fluidized bed. The radiative heat transfer model is developed for predicting the total heat transfer coefficients between submerged surfaces and fluidized beds for several working temperatures. The role of radiation heat transfer in the overall heat transfer process at an immersed surface in a gas-fluidized bed at high temperatures is investigated. Analytical results are compared with the previously done experiments and a good agreement between the two, is obtained.
