You are getting an error since when the inner integral is
initially sampled, k hasn't been assigned a value. You can do
the double integral without the error by doing:
In[3]:= NIntegrate[
Exp[-k Abs[Z]]/(1 + (k rd)^2)^1.5 Cos[k R Sin[\[Theta]]], {\[Theta],
0, \[Pi]}, {k, 0, \[Infinity]}]
Out[3]= 0.000424068
That is, to do a double integral you do not need to type
NIntegrate twice. And by using this syntax, the algorithm being
used can immediately see k is to be assigned numerical values
during the integration.
