Turbulent mixed convection is a common phenomenon in applications such as heat exchangers and climatisation in transport vehicles and buildings and was often studied in the past. Metais and Eckert (J Heat Transf 86(2):295–296, 1964, [6]) experimentally analyse the heat transport in a vertical pipe heated from the outside.
