Hello All,

I am still trying to figure out how to formulate a "long-range" problem.

I have two disks that are not connected, arranged much like a capacitor.

The top disk is being heated, e.g. by a volumetirc heat source, the 
bottom disk
is not. I want the top disk to transfer some of its heat to the bottom disk by

The typical radiation setup in the examples radiates into free space, 
but not to
another body, whose temperature can also change. A body to body radiation
problem instead involves configuration or view factors, as well as temperature
integrals - the details of which are somewhat secondary until I get the 
structure of the problem right.

If there is anyone out there who can help me set this up, I would much
appreciate it. If there is someone, I can share with them what I have so far,
which will also make the problem more clear. My goal is to solve this problem,
of course, but I think it could also make for an intersting addition to the
