Abstract

A method has been developed for calculating the radiant interchange in an enclosure containing specularly reflecting surfaces. Consideration is given to systems composed of two specular surfaces and an unrestricted number of black surfaces. The method is illustrated by numerical examples and comparisons are made with the heat transfer results for diffusely reflecting surfaces.
