Steady-state radiative transfer in absorbing, emitting, isotropically scattering, two-dimensional cylindrical media containing heat generating constituents is analyzed. The diffusely-emitting and diffusely-reflecting boundary surfaces are maintained at prescribed temperatures. The analysis is based using a previously developed integral form of the equation of radiative transfer, and polynomial expansions for the unknown dependent variables. A system of linear algebraic equations for the unknown expansion coefficients is generated by the application of a collocation method. The effects of the optical dimensions and surface properties, and single scattering albedo on the distribution of incident radiation and temperature are investigated.
