Title

Instabilities of Mixed Convection Flows Adjacent to Inclined Plates

Abstract

The onset of instability in mixed convection flow adjacent to an isothermally heated inclined plate was determined in this study through flow visualization. The buoyancy-assisting and buoyancy-opposing flow cases were examined for the flow both above and below the heated plate. The critical Grashof-Reyhnolds number relationships for the onset of instability in this flow domain are reported in this paper.
