A numerical solution of the exact equations of coupled radiative/conductive heat transfer and temperature distribution inside a medium, and of the heat flux distribution at all the gray walls of a two-dimensional rectangular enclosure with the medium having uniform absorbing/emitting properties, using the finite element method, is presented. The medium can also have distributed energy sources. Comparison is made to the results of the P-3 approximation method.
