Laminar natural convection heat transfer from the vertical surface of a cylinder is a
classical subject, which has been studied extensively. Furthermore, this subject has generated
some recent interest in the literature. In the present investigation, numerical experiments were
performed to determine average Nusselt numbers for isothermal vertical cylinders (103 < RaL<
109, 0.5 < L/D <10, and Pr= 0.7) with and without an adiabatic top in a quiescent
ambient environment which will allow for plume growth. Results were compared with
commonly used correlations and new average Nusselt number correlations are presented.
Furthermore, the limit for which the heat transfer results for a vertical flat plate may be used as
an approximation for the heat transfer from a vertical cylinder was investigated.
Here’s what’s next.
