The Third Symposium on Solution Methods for Radiative Heat Transfer in Participating Media is a continuing effort to benchmark solutions for problems of increasing complexity. This paper presents both the statement of a problem used for the benchmarking exercise and the results obtained using a finite-element S4 solution. Cases analyzed include rectangular and L-shaped enclosures, and homogeneous and non-homogeneous media. Calculated surface radiative heat fluxes and divergence of radiative heat fluxes are tabulated at selected coordinates within the evaluated enclosures. Computation times for each of the solutions were recorded and are presented to permit a computational efficiency test against other solution techniques.
