A combined method of Reverse Monte-Carlo Ray-tracing (RMCRT) with Full-Spectrum k-distribution (FSK) for computing the radiative heat transfer is applied to an extreme non-homogeneous case (both temperature and gas mixture composition vary with positions) with absorbing, emitting media. Parameter Studies of the scaled FSK (FSSK) and correlated FSK (FSCK) methods for the case, such as g point resolution, mesh resolution, reference states and integration quadratures, are carried out. The results from the FSSK and FSCK are only affected by the chosen reference states, and are not sensitive to other parameters.
