Inverse solution techniques are applied to the design of heat transfer systems where radiation is important. Various solutions using inverse methods are demonstrated, and it is argued that inverse design techniques provide an alternative to conventional iterative design methods that is more accurate and faster, and can provide a greatly improved first estimate of a thermal design. This estimate can then be used as a trial design in more complete thermal analysis programs for predicting system behavior, eliminating many faulty first design trials. [S0022-1481(00)02703-1]
