A radiative conductivity model is developped for porous media with a solid opaque phase and a transparent fluid phase. In a first step, an effective semi transparent medium occupying the volume of the real fluid phase is characterized, assuming the validity of the Beer's laws. For example, rods bundles in squared or triangular configurations can be directly characterized by effective strongly anisotropic extinction, absorption ans scattering coefficients, optical index and phase function, which depends on both the incident and scattering unit vectors, by generalizing the Radiative Distribution Function Identification method of Tancrez and Taine. The validity and accuracy of the associated Beer's laws are discussed in this case. In a second step, at the limit of an optically thick porous medium, an original model based on a perturbation method of the Radiative Transfer Equation directly leads to the determination, under an accurate validity criterion, of a radiative conductivity tensor for the fluid phase. Examples of results are given in the case of rod bundles versus porosity, specific area and local wall absorptivity.
