Abstract : The thermal energy transferred from a point source to a plane receiver is considered. Both the source and the receiver are located between two parallel Lambert planes; the receiver is parallel to the reflecting planes. The analysis considers the volume between the reflecting plane to be a vacuum, that is, no attenuation of the radiant energy is taken into account. Data are presented for the source located midway between the two reflecting planes. The application and limitation of this analysis to nuclear weapons effects are discussed. (Author)
