A numerical solution to the steadystate equation of transfer in azimuthally symmetric geometries
Abstract
The code GLAM solves the twodimensional, azimuthally symmetric, steadystate equation of transfer for the energy density, flux and pressure tensor. The code calculates the intensity along a given pay and then numerically integrates the intensity to obtain the various moments. A unique feature of the code is the method for the calculation of the limits of the azimuthal angle. The code can handle the sourcefree vacuum equations and problems with emission and isotropic scattering sources. The code also has an option for the calculation of geometric view factors.
