Abstract

An electrochemical technique is used to study local mass transfer coefficients on surfaces of inclined enclosures over the range 1.1×10 4 < Ra H < 1.4×1010 for a nominal Schmidt number of 2280. Scaling with gcosθ instead of g in the Rayleigh number correlates the data well at low angles of inclination; however, as either the aspect ratio or the angle of inclination increase, the longitudinal density stratification causes the data to deviate from a power law scaling.
