Unsteady-state radiative heat transfer between two opaque bodies of finite dimensions

  • A. L. Burka

The unsteady-state radiative interaction of two opaque gray bodies according to the Stefan-Boltzmann law is considered. The problem is reduced to a non-linear Volterra integral equation for the net radiation density. A solution is obtained for a linear approximation. The general case and the short-time behavior are discussed.
