Abstract

"This research is an extension of previous work on the development of an integrator or resistance-capacitance circuit analogy for natural convection. As a part of a larger project to enhance transport phenomenon on a micro-scale using radiation, this work studied the phenomenon of natural convection. Using experimental techniques and numerical simulations (FLUENT code), it investigated the transient response of a natural convection system. It proposes an integrator circuit analogy for a natural convection system. Experimental investigation with three different fluids indicated that the characteristic time constant of the system is related to the Prandtl number of the fluid. The project also investigated the effect of gravity and fluid viscosity"--Abstract, page iv.
