Accurate prediction of radiative heat transfer plays a key role in many high temperature applications, such as combustion devices and fires. Among various simulation methods, the Monte-Carlo Ray-Tracing (MCRT) has the advantage of solving the radiative transfer equation (RTE) for real gas mixtures with almost no approximations; however, it has disadvantage of requiring a large computational effort. The MCRT method can be carried out with either the Forward MCRT or the Reverse MCRT, depending on the direction of ray tracing. The RMCRT method has advantages over the FMCRT method in that it uses less memory, and in a domain decomposition parallelization strategy, it can explicitly obtain solutions for the domain of interest without the need for the solution on the entire domain.
