Abstract

Experiments were performed to study natural convection heat transfer in a horizontal annulus when a square heating element was positioned at different locations on the inner insulated cylinder. It was found that the flow pattern, the temperature distribution around the inner cylinder wall and the local heat transfer rate around the outer cylinder were very sensitive to the location of the heating element. The heating element Nusselt number at various locations on the inner cylinder was well correlated against the Rayleigh number to the one third power.
