The objective of this present work is to provide a new approach for the radiative characteristics computation of semitransparent media containing spherical bubbles. The bubble size is considred much larger than the wavelength. First, previous models from the literature based on the independent theory are reviewed and established in the Geometric optic limit. Second, a predictive model using the Monte Carlo method is developed. The results obtained from the independent theory models and the Monte Carlo approach are compared. In addition, by varying the bubbles volume fraction, we investigate the limit of validity of the independent theory in such medium.
