Mixed Convection

  • Donald A. Nield
  • Adrian Bejan

Abstract

Since we have dealt with natural convection and forced convection in some detail, our treatment of mixed convection can be brief. It is guided by the review paper by Lai et al. (1991a). We start with a treatment of boundary layer flow on heated plane walls inclined at some nonzero angle to the horizontal.
