Analysis We consider the top surface to be surface 1, the base surface to be surface 2 and the side surfaces to be surface 3. The cylindrical furnace can be considered to be threesurface enclosure. We assume that steadystate conditions exist. Since all surfaces are black, the radiosities are equal to the emissive power of surfaces, and the net rate of radiation heat transfer from the top surface can be determined from

The view factor from the base to the top surface of the cylinder is (From Figure 1244). The view factor from the base to the side surfaces is determined by applying the summation rule to be
Substituting,
Discussion The negative sign indicates that net heat transfer is to the top surface.
