F1 Heat Transfer by Free Convection: Fundamentals

Abstract

Free convection refers to the fluid flow which is driven by a spatially nonuniform distribution of density [1]. The nonuniformity of density can be either a result of inhomogeneous temperature distribution or nonuniform concentration of an admixture such as salt concentration in seawater. The present overview is exclusively devoted to free convection due to temperature differences.
