ABSTRACT: A multiple length-scale asymptotic analysis shows that 1-D diffusive heterogeneous-media transport problems are accurately modeled by the atomic mix approximation when the optical widths of the “chunks” of different materials are O(1). (The atomic mix approximation is commonly known to be valid only when the chunks of different materials are optically thin.) The analysis also shows that for the same class of problems, the Standard, or Levermore-Pomraning (LP) model does not have the correct asymptotic behavior. Numerical results are given that validate the theoretical predictions.
