Abstract
The concept of multiple Markov chains is applied to the study of radiative heat transfer problems. A stochastic method for calculating radiative interchange in enclosures consisting of a number of isothermal surfaces with directional-bidirectional properties is developed. In this work, the Monte Carlo method is employed for calculating the multiple transition probabilities. Numerical examples have been presented to demonstrate the usefulness of the present approach.
