Abstract

An experimental apparatus and methodology are described for investigation of heat transfer from a vertical flat plate embedded in a saturated porous medium. The goals are to develop a Nusselt number correlation for steady heat transfer and to quantify the effects of thermal dispersion in the wall region. It has been hypothesized that the wall temperature variation as a function of time and space is an indication of the flow field developing in the porous medium and therefore a noninvasive measurement technique is used. Transient temperatures provide data for examining the behavior of a porous medium during the conduction regime and the departure from it.
