Heat transfer in natural convection from horizontal heat-transfer surfaces facing downward

  • P. M. Brdlik

Approximate solutions are presented for the transfer of heat in two regions, i. e., a region in which the inertial and viscous forces are of identical order of magnitude, and the region of creep flow. The experiments carried out with air over a wide range of Rax numbers yield results in good agreement with the solutions.
