    The method of matched asymptotic expansions is applied to the non-linear radiative cooling of finite or semi-infinite cylinders. It is shown that the method applies when radiation is the limiting factor in the heat-transfer process, i.e. when the heat resistance of the bulk is relatively low. The analysis will be of importance in the fields of crystal growth and the cooling of fins.
