Experimental Analysis for Natural Convection Heat Transfer through Vertical Cylinder
Shyam S. Kanwar,  Manoj K. Yadav,  Saurabh Sharma
Convection is the mode of heat transfer which generally takes place in liquid and gases. Consider a fluid flow over a heated surface, the molecules of fluid adjacent to the surface, absorb heat and become hot, on heating the molecules become lighter due to decrease in density, they rise up and the cold molecules of higher density come down in contact of heated surface, in this way, motion of molecules sets up in fluid due to developed density gradient. The thermal protection system in many systems is widely accomplished applying natural convection process due to its low cost, reliability and easy maintenance. Typical applications include the heat exchangers, cooling of electronic equipment and nuclear reactors, solar chimneys and Trombe walls in building industry, etc. Experimental studies of natural convective flows in two dimensional channels, opened to ambient conditions at both end sections, are extensively reported in the literature but most of them are treated severely idealized experimentally.
