Default Radiation and symmetry

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if the radiation models are realiable when using symmetry?

As the radiation models are based on reflection, can fluent account for radiation that may cross the symmetry axis? For example a cylindrical furnace using symmetry along the longitudinal axis.

Thanks JWR,

Can you give me a brief explaination of how fluent accounts for radiation that crosses the symmetry boundary???
