Title

Two-Dimensional Radiative Equilibrium: Boundary Fluxes for a Finite Medium Subjected to Cosine Varying Radiation

Abstract

The influence of spatial fluctuations in the incident radiation on the flux at the boundaries of a two-dimensional, finite, planar, absorbing-emitting, gray medium is investigated. Both collimated and diffuse incident radiation are considered. The boundary fluxes are expressed only in terms of the emissive powers at the boundaries. Numerical results are obtained for a wide range of spatial frequencies and optical thicknesses. The range of usefulness of the semi-infinite approximation is determined. © 1975.
