An analysis of the effect of anisotropic scattering on radiant heat transfer is presented. The equation of transfer for a scattering, absorbing, and emitting media is simplified by restricting the analysis to axially symmetric plane parallel geometry. The scattering medium is assumed to be composed of spherical particles of uniform diameter and complex refractive index. The scattering functions are taken from the literature and are the result of the application of Mie Theory of Electromagnetic Scattering.
