A solution of the radiative transfer equation for an axisymmetric cylindrical enclosure containing radiatively participating gases and particles is presented. Nonhomogeneities of the radiative properties of the medium as well as of the radiation characteristics of the boundaries are allowed for, and the boundaries are assumed to be diffusely emitting and reflecting. The scattering phase function is represented by the delta-Eddington approximation to account for highly forward scattering by particulates. The model for radiative transfer is based on the P 1 and P 3 -spherical harmonics approximations. Numerical solutions of model equations are obtained using finite-difference as well as finite-element schemes.
