This paper presents a modified scheme to analyze the radiative heat transfer in axisymmetrical enclosures using the finite volume method. The modified scheme is derived from the conservation of radiative energy in an infinitely thin slice of an axisymmetrical cylinder. Therefore, the final discretized equations are based on a two-dimensional mesh in the spatial domain, and similar to meshes used for convective and conductive heat transfer analysis. The control angle overlap problem caused by misalignment of solid angles with control volume faces in the angular direction is eliminated. Error caused by the control volume face curvature is also eliminated. Comparison of results for several demonstration cases with literature yields satisfactory results.
