Radiative transfer in one-dimensional hollow cylindrical geometry with anisotropic scattering and variable medium properties


INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER, vol.45, no.26, pp.5239-5242, 2002 (SCI-Expanded) identifier identifier


The effects of spatially varying absorption and scattering coefficients on radiation transfer in absorbing, emitting, anisotropically scattering hollow cylinders with reflecting boundaries were investigated using the discrete ordinates method (DOM) by Tsai et al. [Int. J. Heat Mass Transfer 33 (1990) 2651]. Their problem solutions for hollow cylinder cases are incorrect. The cause of this inaccuracies are identified and the correct solutions obtained using DOM S-6 are provided. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
