Analysis of convection heat transfer from an infinite upwardfacing heated horizontal surface exposed to the natural environmentDetlev G. Kroger DOI: 10.1615/IHTC12.1940 ResumoThe problem of convection heat transfer from an infinite, upwardfacing, heated horizontal surface that is exposed to the natural environment is analysed. The approximate analysis of natural convection considers the early development of a thermal conduction layer in a fluid adjacent to the heated surface. This layer ultimately becomes unstable resulting in the formation of thermals. Cases of constant surface temperature and constant heat fluxare evaluated. An extension of the analysis to model the influence of winds on the heat transfer
coefficient is not possible.
