Meaning of diffuse fraction,emissivity,absorption.
Hi all, i'm working with DO radiation in Fluent. I want to know better the meaning of "diffuse fraction","internal emissivity","absorption". If i have a UV lamp defined as wall that emitted radiation 500 W/m^2, how can i define a near wall as a mirror? which parameters i must set? i want a specular reflection, not absorption,not trasmissivity. Please help me. Thanks in advance.

diffuse reflectivity specular reflectivity absorptivity
diffuse reflectivity = diffuse fraction(1-internal emissivity)
specular reflectivity = 1- diffuse fraction
absorptivity= diffuse fraction* internal emissivity
