This paper develops models for predicting the radiant heat flux in light-weight fibrous insulations (LWFI). The radiative transport process is modeled by the two-flux solution and the linear anisotropic scattering (LAS) solution of the equation of transfer. The radiative properties of LWFI consistent with these solutions have been determined based on extinction of electromagnetic radiation by the fibers. Their dependence on the physical characteristics of fibrous insulations have been investigated.
