The Discrete Ordinates Radiation Element Method (DOREM), which is radiative transfer code, is applied for solving phonon transport of nano/microscale materials. The DOREM allows phonon simulation with multi-dimensional complex geometries. The objective of this study is to apply the DOREM to the nano/microstructured materials. It is confirmed that significant changes of the heat transport phenomena with different characteristic length scales and geometries are observed. This study also discusses further variations for understanding of heat transport mechanisms.
