Abstract

Use of the MSC/NASTRAN finite element thermal radiation model to analyze illumination systems containing Lambertian diffusers and sources is described. The results of an analysis of a typical system are shown to agree with measurements. The standard deviation of the differences between prediction and measurement was <2%.
