An efficient approach for predicting radiative transfer in high temperature multicomponent gas mixtures with soot particles is presented. The method draws on the previously published multiplication approach for handling gas mixtures in the spectral line weighted-sum-of-gray-gases (SLW) model. In this method, the gas mixture is treated as a single gas whose absorption blackbody distribution function is calculated through the distribution functions of the individual species in the mixture. The soot is, in effect, treated as another gas in the mixture. Validation of the method is performed by comparison with line-by-line solutions for radiative transfer with mixtures of water vapor, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide with a range of soot loadings (volume fractions). Comparison is performed also with previously published statistical narrow band and classical weighted-sum-of-gray-gases solutions.
