Discrete ordinates and finite volume methods

DOI: 10.1615/thermopedia.000241


The discrete ordinates method (DOM) was originally developed in the astrophysics community to study radiation transfer in stellar and planetary atmospheres (Chandrasekhar, 1950). Later on, it was employed in nuclear engineering to study neutron transport (Lee, 1962; Lathrop, 1966; Carlson and Lathrop, 1968). Despite a few early works on 1D heat transfer problems published between 1965 and 19 ...
