A new full-spectrum k-distribution (FSK) method has been developed, which integrates the advantage of the multi-group FSK method in dealing with temperature inhomogeneities for single-species media with the advantages of the multi-scale FSK method in dealing with partial pressure inhomogeneities for gas mixtures. The new method can achieve great accuracy for radiative heat tranfer calculations in participating media with inhomogeneities in both temperature and gas concentrations. The mathematical development of the new method is described, and several sample calculations are performed to demonstrate the accuracy the new method by comparison with line-by-line calculations.
