radiation view factor


radiation view factor
the fraction of thermal energy leaving the surface of object 1 and reaching the surface of object 2, determined entirely from geometrical considerations. Stated in other words, it is the fraction of object 2 visible from the surface of object 1, and ranges from zero to 1. Its units are dimensionless.
