A number of technical processes and natural phenomena involve heat transfer by thermal radiation. The physical basis of all solutions considered in this book isthe notion considered in this book is the notion of radiation transfer in an absorbing and scattering medium as a macroscopic process which can be described by a phenomenological transfer theory and kinetic equations for spectral radiation intensity. In addition to covering approximate methods for the solution of the radiation transfer equation, the book discusses radiative properties of some disperse systems, and radiative and combined heat transfer problems. The appendix includes computer codes for studying the methods discussed in the book.
"This reviewer found Radiation Heat Transfer in Disperse Systems to be very interesting and useful. The extensive comparisons between approximate and exact solutions, combined with the physical explanations for the differences, provide important insights into the complexities and subtleties of this subject. It serves as an excellent reference volume for this specific topic."
