This document describes the theory of the Optical Transmission OPTRAN code developed to predict the optical performance of aircraft aircrew enclosure transparency designs subjected to operational loads. The theory on which the code is based is described. The OPTRAN ray trace code accounts for thermal and stress optical effects. Geometry is defined by parametric cubic solid. The refraction of incoming light is computed as a function of parametric solid surface outward normals. Angular deviation, polarization effects, and lensing are computer for each ray.
