The integral equation formulation for transient radiative transfer in two-dimensional cylindrical nonhomogeneous absorbing and linearly anisotropically scattering media with collimated pulse irradiation is presented. The integral equations are solved by the quadrature method. The results by the present method agree quite well with those obtained by the Monte Carlo method. The effects of spatially variable properties on transient radiative transfer are investigated for various optical sizes and extinction coefficient distributions. The blocking effect on transient two-dimensional radiative transfer in nonhomogeneous media is different from that on steady-state radiative transfer.
