Two models are presented for the prediction of solar radiation transmission through a random medium of glass and water. One model is based on two-dimensional radiation exchange through a rectangular lattice of glass and water. This model is also applicable for materials other than glass and water. The other model is a semi-empirical equation which expresses the transmission as an exponential function. Both models predict transmittances within 5–10 percent of experimental data.
