A method is presented for calculating radiative exchange in enclosures the reflectance of whose surfaces can be approximated by the sum of a diffuse and a specular component. As illustrations of application of the method, the radiative fluxes between the surfaces of two concentric spheres (or infinitely long concentric cylinders) and among the faces of a cube are calculated.
