Treatment of enclosures with obstructions 21: (a) an enclosure with an obstruction; (b) surfaces are initially split to form sub-surfaces (a trapezoidal prism is constructed around each subsurface); (c) each trapezoidal prism is checked for ray intersection; (d) if a ray intersects a trapezoidal prism, the corresponding sub-surface is checked for ray intersection by finding u* through Newton iteration
