Abstract:

This final report gives an account of work performed since the interim report. The report is divided into two parts. Part I covers the consolidation, refinement, and increased versatility of empirical computer programs over initial efforts in the field of prediction of radiation patterns from shielded infrared sources. Part II presents the development of an analytical approach for the evaluation of shield configurations for infrared sources. This approach employs a set of complex integral equations relating shield geometry and radiative characteristics of the source to angular distribution of radiative energy.
