This paper outlines the formulation of the two-dimensional transient radiation transport through a scattering-absorbing medium. The P1 approximation in a Cartesian coordinate system is invoked to simplify the transient radiative transfer equation because it is very complicated to solve in its general form. A boundary-driven radiative problem is considered in which the radiation intensities at some areas on a surface are modeled as boundary conditions and maintained at constant values in all angular directions.
