Abstract

"An experimental investigation has been performed to determine the free convection heat transfer from a heated flat plate in air moved from the vertical position through three inclined positions to the horizontal position. The hot surface of the plate was facing downward for the horizontal and three inclined positions. Tests were performed at plate surface temperatures from 120°F up to 404°F. Data for the plate surface temperature at about 165°F with the plate in the vertical position agrees very well with previous experimental work. This same data was used to determine a new parameter, introduced into the Pholhausen free convection boundary layer equation, to account for the angular position of the plate as it is moved from the vertical to the horizontal position. Use of this modified equation results in a convergence of all data to one normalized curve"--Abstract, page ii.
