A straight-forward computer simulation technique is presented for determining the spatial intensity distribution that can be expected when a rough object is illuminated with partially coherent light. The technique is useful for problems in which the illumination source is a laser whose spectral content can be described as a sum of delta function components. Laboratory and computer simulation results that illustrate illumination coherence effects on imagery obtained with the method known as imaging correlography are presented.
