Abstract

The present work is an experimental attempt to understand the issue of mixed convection under hyperbaric conditions. The principal objective of the present work is to conduct investigations leading to a fuller explanation of heat transfer process on the external wall of a heated cylinder under conditions of laminar flow at transverse of a flow around the cylinder. Investigations are aiming at determination of the limits of existence of mixed convection and explanation, amongst the others, of the influence of free convection on the disturbances of heat transport during laminar flow of a medium and finally explanation of the intensification of heat transfer process occurring during a flow under conditions of high pressures.
