Abstract

Transient natural convection in a side-cooled cavity is experimentally investigated. The shadowgraph technique is used to visualize the flow in the cavity. The results indicate that the flow development is characterized by the following distinct processes: (a) the initial growth of the vertical thermal boundary layers and horizontal intrusions; (b) the interaction of the intrusions and filling up of the cavity; and (c) the stratification and formation of double layer structures.
