Temperature distributions within semi-transparent materials like glass strongly determine their behavior. It is fundamental to take radiation into account to determine exact temperature distributions. The Rosseland Approximation for radiation is usually an appropriate method, but is only valid with an optically thick glass. In the present paper, we propose an improved approximation that is both efficient and sufficiently accurate even for the semi-transparent region. This new radiation model is used to determine the temperature along the flat glass thickness during tempering. The impact of temperature evaluation on residual stresses is discussed.
