Two-Dimensional Radiative Equilibrium: A Semi-Infinite Medium Subjected to a Finite Strip of Radiation
Exact numerical results are presented for the emissive power and radiative flux at the boundary of a two-dimensional, absorbing-emitting, semi-infinite medium bounded by (1) a strip of collimated radiation and (2) a constant temperature black strip. The method of super-position is used to obtain the finite strip solutions in terms of cosine varying solutions. The infinite integrals arising in the solutions are converted to an alternating series of finite integrals. The Euler transformation is then applied to speed up convergence. Error bounds are determined whereby the two-dimensional finite strip analysis can be approximated by the simpler one-dimensional solution. © 1974.
