Ai Fij = A j F ji Reciprocity N ∑F ij =1 Summation j=1 –  In general if we have N surfaces in an enclosure, we require N2 view factors. As a minimum N(N ­1)/2 view factors are € required. The remaining factors can be deduced using the above formulas. –  If a surface “sees itself”, i.e. concave, then Fii >0. Otherwise for flat or convex surfaces Fii = 0. 28 Radia%on Heat Transfer •  View Factors: 29 Radia%on Heat Transfer •  View Factors: 30 Radia%on Heat Transfer •  View Factors: 31 Radia%on Heat Transfer •  View Factors: 32 Example 3 •  A simple conical enclosure is the result of two parallel disks of diameter 10 cm and 25 cm which are connected with a third surface to form an enclosed system.
