Modelling both radiation and conduction through the same medium

I'm simulating heat transfer. Body A (see illustration) is heated from beneath. Body B is situated above Body A, separated by a layer of air (modeled as a solid).

Now, both inner surfaces of Body A and Body B are radiating surfaces. As I would like to include not only the radiation between those two surfaces, but also the conduction through the (stationary) air between them, my question is the following:

 

Is it possible to simulate radiation and conduction through the same medium?

 

I'm expecting the view factor to be zero due to the view being blocked by the air component.
