This article presents transient numerical simulations of heat transfer occurring during sublimation growth of SiC single crystals via the Modified Lely Method, investigating the respective influence of radiative and convective contributions. We give a concise treatment of the radiation model including semi-transparency via the energy-band approach and we briefly describe the corresponding numerical methods. A complete documentation of the used material data is included.
