Phase: RAMI IV
This ray-tracing code allows the explicit representation of radiation transfer in arbitrarily complex scenes.
It implements a Monte Carlo approach where the fate of millions of individual rays are followed as they travel through the computer simulated scene. This model implements the most detailed and most faithful simulations of radiation transfer, but is rather expensive computationally. It has the capability to run in parallel on a cluster of machines using the Message Passing Interface (MPI). Due to its modular nature, arbitrarily complex canopy scenes may be entered, and further measurement types may always be added. RAYTRAN is currently not distributed publicly.
