Analysts and experiment are compared for the radiant exchange among three surfaces making up an infinitely long cavity. Two of the cavity surfaces are specular-diffuse, while the third is bi directional. The cavity is exposed to collimated incident energy to maximize the effect of the surface reflectivity characteristics on the radiation exchange.
