Effects of Free-Stream Velocity on Turbulent Natural-Convection Flow Along a Vertical Plate
A detailed measurement of heat transfer and fluid flow of turbulent boundary-layer air flow in natural and mixed convection adjacent to an isothermal vertical flat plate are reported. A cold-wire anemometer and laser Doppler velocimeter were used, respectively, to measure simultaneously the time-mean turbulent temperature and velocity distributions and their turbulent fluctuations. In this experimental study, measurements of the flow and thermal fields were carried out at one streamwise location, x
