Natural Convective Heat Transfer from Narrow Plates

Authors: Oosthuizen, Patrick H., Kalendar, Abdulrahim

  • Deals with the practically important case of natural convection from narrow plates
  • Reviews the studies that are the basis for the prediction of natural convection from narrow plates and assesses the accuracy of these prediction methods
  • Discusses the effect of plate inclination on the natural convective heat transfer from narrow plates
  • Discusses the effect of conditions at the edge of the plate on the natural convective heat transfer from narrow plates
  • Discusses natural convective heat transfer from two adjacent narrow plates, a situation that can arise in some practical devices

About this book

Natural Convective Heat Transfer from Narrow Plates deals with a heat transfer situation that is of significant practical importance but which is not adequately dealt with in any existing textbooks or in any widely available review papers. The aim of the book is to introduce the reader to recent studies of natural convection from narrow plates including the effects of plate edge conditions, plate inclination, thermal conditions at the plate surface and interaction of the flows over adjacent plates. Both numerical and experimental studies are discussed and correlation equations based on the results of these studies are reviewed.
