ANGULAR DISCRETIZATION METHODS

Following from: Discrete ordinates and finite volume methods

In the article Mathematical formulation, we have seen that the angular discretization of the radiative transfer equation (RTE) requires the selection of a finite number of directions of propagation of radiation intensity and the associated quadrature weights in the discrete ordinates method (DOM), and the selection of discrete solid angles, also referred to as control angles, in the finite volume method (FVM). In general, any angular discretization method employed in the FVM may also be applied in the DOM, since the value of a solid angle defined in the FVM may be regarded as a weight in the DOM, and the center of that solid angle may be taken as the direction of propagation of radiation. The reverse is not true. In fact, although the weight of a quadrature in the DOM may be thought of as a solid an ...
