Abstract
Experimental (LDA) and computational (CFD) investigations of steady, laminar natural convection in a horizontally vented chamber containing a vertical heated cylinder at the center are reported. The heated cylinder was located on the lower adiabatic wall of the chamber and was 2/3 the height of the chamber. The cylinder surfaces were maintained at a constant temperature. The chamber inlet and outlet were located at the bottom and top of facing vertical walls, respectively. In this study, experiments were conducted using laser-Doppler anemometry (LDA) with a two-component Ar-Ion laser connected to two burst spectrum analyzers (BSA). Velocity profiles (of both vertical and horizontal velocity components) were measured at the inlet, outlet and at other locations inside the chamber. For the numerical simulation (3-D, steady-state, laminar) the governing equations were solved using the computational fluid dynamics code PHOENICS. Comparison of the experimental data with computational results showed satisfactory agreement and the importance that LDA measurements have in verifying CFD simulations.
