Extension of the HN method for solving radiation transfer problems in plane geometry for general anisotropic scattering

C. Tezcan
From the journal Kerntechnik


The HN method is used to solve radiation transfer problems for plane parallel media for anisotropic scattering. This approach is based on the use of the angular distributions in terms of singular eigenfunctions of the method of elementary solutions. Two analytical expressions are derived for the coefficients of the power series expansions in exit distributions.


Erweiterung der HN Methode zur Lösung von Strahlungstransportproblemen in ebener Geometrie für anisotrope Streuung. Die HN Methode wird angewendet zur Lösung von Strahlungstransportproblemen in ebenen parallelen Medien für anisotrope Streuung. Dieser Ansatz basiert auf der Anwendung von Winkelverteilungen in Form singulärer Eigenfunktionen der Methode elementarer Lösungen. Zwei analytische Ausdrücke werden abgeleitet für die Koeffizienten der Potenzreihen-Approximation in Ausgangsverteilungen.
