Abstract

An algorithm based on the Monte Carlo method is described that permits the precise calculation of radiant emission characteristics of nonisothermal blackbody cavities for use as standard sources in radiometry, photometry, and radiation thermometry. The algorithm is realized for convex axisymmetric specular-diffuse cavities formed by three conical surfaces. The numerical experiments provide estimates of normal effective emissivities of cylindrical blackbody cavities with flat or conical bottoms for various axisymmetric temperature distributions on the cavity walls.
