Abstract

The shape effect of inelastic scattering by small particles is investigated using geometrical optics. The particles considered are described by surfaces composed of triangles. In order to determine the accuracy of this model, the results for an approximated sphere with different degrees of discretization are compared with the result for a smooth sphere. The triangulation method is then used for describing a superellipsoid. This enables us to consider inelastic scattering for a variety of particles by changing only a few parameters.
