The resistance-network representation for radiative heat transfer is developed for a planar absorbing-scattering medium on the basis of the two-flux model and the linear anisotropic scattering model. Particular attention is given to the scattering effect due to particulates such as flame soot or smoke particles. Limiting relations for various radiative regimes are derived and the physical significance of the resistances are discussed. An illustrative example is presented for thermal radiation from a smoke layer. Extension to two-phase dispersed systems is also demonstrated.
