It is shown in this paper that, in the case of radiation from spheres and infinitely long cylinders to a certain class of surfaces, the configuration factors are independent of the validity of Lambert’s cosine law. A new technique has been developed to calculate the configuration factors in radiation from spheres and infinitely long cylinders and, with this technique, formulas have been obtained for several geometries for which no solutions have previously appeared in the literature.
