    Abstract

    The effective thermal conductivity for radiative heat transfer within an optically thick fluid layer undergoing high Rayleigh number convection is derived. This result is combined with available ″pure″ free-convection heat-transfer correlations to obtain closed-form analytical descriptions of the gross properties of a radiating fluid layer heated internally or from below.
