The increased use of infrared imaging as a flow visualization technique and as a validation technique for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) codes has led to an in-depth study of infrared band models. The ability to create fast and accurate images of airframe and plume infrared emissions often depends on the complexity of the band model. An infrared band model code has been created based largely on the band model published in NASA SP-3080, Handbook of Infrared Radiation from Combustion Gases. Improvements to the NASA SP-3080 model using the N I RA T AM data files have been made. The model and its theoretical basis are thoroughly described. Results are presented and are compared with results from the band models contained in SCORPIO and LOIR.
