The multiscale full-spectrum -distribution (MSFSK) method has become a promising method for radiative heat transfer in inhomogeneous media. In this paper a new scheme is proposed to extend the MSFSK’s ability in dealing with boundary wall emission by distributing this emission across the different gas scales. This scheme pursues the overlap concept of the MSFSK method and requires no changes in the original MSFSK formulation. A boundary emission distribution function is introduced and two approaches of evaluating the function are outlined. The first approach involves line-by-line integration of the spectral absorption coefficients and is, therefore, impractical. The second approach employs a narrow-band -distribution database to calculate all parameters as in the original narrow-banded based MSFSK formulation and is, therefore, efficient. This distribution scheme of wall emission is evaluated and the two approaches are compared by conducting sample calculations for radiative heat transfer in strongly inhomogeneous media using both the MSFSK method and the line-by-line method.
