Radiative integral transfer equations for a rectangular absorbing, non-emitting, and linearly anisotropically scattering homogeneous medium are solved numerically for the incident energy and the net heat flux components using the method of “singularity subtraction.” A benchmark problem is chosen as a rectangular homogeneous cold participating medium which is subject to externally uniform diffuse radiation on the bottom wall. The solutions for the incident energy and net heat flux components for selected points for a square domain are provided in tabular form for benchmarking purposes.
