Abstract


ABSTRACT

In this paper, experimental results of mixed convection heat transfer over a heated horizontal surface within a partially open vertical channel are presented. Experiments were carried out for different Rayleigh numbers, inlet velocities and heights of channel inlet. Experimental results show that the heat transfer is enhanced by decreasing the height of channel inlet, increasing the velocity and Rayleigh number.
