Phenomena of convection are abundant in nature as well as in industry. This volume addresses the subject of convection from the point of view of both, theory and application. While the first three chapters provide a refresher on fluid dynamics and heat transfer theory, the rest of the book describes the modern developments in theory. Thus it brings the reader to the qfrontq of the modern research. This monograph provides the theoretical foundation on a topic relevant to metallurgy, ecology, meteorology, geo-and astrophysics, aerospace industry, chemistry, crystal physics, and many other fields.Thus, owing to the presence of density gradients in the fluid, the potential gravitational energy transforms to the ... The granules have sizes from 500 to 1000 ... The range of problems dealing with flows that involve natural or free convection has recently been extended. ... Based on experimental and theoretical investigations of natural convection, it was identified as a separate field in fluid mechanics.
