Theoretical analysis of free convection between parallel, isothermal plates

  • Andrzej Kłopocki

Abstract

The energy equation for free convection flow between parallel, isothermal plates was intagrated and general relationship describing heat transfer was found.The discrepancies between the author's results and the earlier results of Blenbaas and Bodoia and Osterie do not exceed 10% for GrPr·s/l < 200.It was found that free convection heat transfer in the investigated conditions can be replaced with a non-steady heat conduction-process in a thin rod with isolated side surfaces.
