Free convection from a horizontal line source of heat

Original Papers


In this paper a study is made of finite Grashof number effects upon the flow, in an unbounded domain, in the buoyant plume which forms over a horizontal line source of heat. The consequences of introducing a plane boundary into the domain are also assessed for two particular configurations.

In dieser Arbeit wird der Effekt der endlichen Grashof-Zahl auf die Strömung untersucht, in einem unbegrenzten Medium mit natürlicher Konvektion, die durch eine horizontale linienförmige Quelle erzeugt wird. Die Folgen einer ebenen Begrenzungsfläche werden für zwei besondere Konfigurationen untersucht.
