The problem of radiation transport (RT) in media with a nonsymmetric scattering index is examined under multiple scattering conditions. The governing influence on the nature of the RT is exerted by the integral index parameters that take account of the "forward-backward" radiation. Nonsymmetry of the index μ/e{open}, equal to three produces a relative energy redistribution through the side faces of the medium within 20% limits, where the maximum redistribution is observed for small transverse dimensions τyz=5. For large transverse dimensions the effect of index nonsymmetry does not appear. It is shown that the degree of anisotropy is less in spatially bounded media as compared with an unbounded layer of equal optical thickness.
