[en] In the present paper, a new method for partitioning a
circle in cells is presented. Cells have equal areas and
shapes, so the method is termed the Isocell method. Its
most interesting property is that cell centres are uniformly
distributed inside the circle. Among possible
applications of the Isocell method, the calculation of
view factors by ray-tracing (image rendering, radiative
heat transfer modelling) is presented.
