Internal Natural Convection: Heating from the Side

  • Donald A. Nield
  • Adrian Bejan

Abstract

Enclosures heated from the side are most representative of porous systems that function while oriented vertically, as in the insulations for buildings, industrial cold-storage installations, and cryogenics. As in the earlier chapters, we begin with the most fundamental aspects of the convection heat transfer process when the flow is steady and in the Darcy regime. Later, we examine the special features of flows that deviate from the Darcy regime, flows that are time-dependent, and flows that are confined in geometries more complicated than the two-dimensional rectangular space shown in Fig. 7.1.
