Description: Report presenting an exploration of Froude number, which is found to be the parameter that determines the effect of body rotations on internal natural convection flows. Explicit forms of Froude number are determined for the cases of predominant rotation and predominant axial force. Results indicated that in a heated cylindrical container no significant convective effects are generated by rotations alone.
