I am currently searching for a model or an approach (reference, course, demonstration) to formulate and estimate surface temperature of a known material (for example, concrete, metal), exposed to sunlight/wind, over a given period of time (day, week). The objective would be to be able to give an estimated time serie of the surface temperature based on local weather data.
The hypothesis I want to start with:
- I consider the material homogenous, and the surface whose temperature I want to estiamte is flat ;
- I consider only one face (the studied face) to be exposed to sunlight/wind/other weather conditions (others faces are exposed to air temperature) ;
- I suppose I do not know the exact thickness or shape of my material (let's say a block of concrete)
- However, I know that my block of material is thick enough to not be considered as an infinitely small sheet. For example, I consider 2meters thick concrete. Semi-infinite thickness hypothesis can be assumed, if practical.
- I consider there isn't any rain/snow/ice
The data/parameters I have :
- Any thermodynamic properties of the material itself
- Time series of ambient air temperature, sunlight intensity (therefore if sunny or cloudy), windspeed.
- Position of the sun, and incidence angle of sunlight on my surface at any given time.
I have started researching papers/courses about estimation of the surface temperature with similar inputs, finding some papers presenting specific applications and hypothesis valid in only certain scenarios or with specific materials, or only valid for maximum temperature. I am still searching for a more generic expression of the surface temperature (or if possible, temperature model in the first centimeters below the surface), considering I have access to properties of the material and significant weather data.
