AbstractThe simple basic theory of natural convection across openings in vertical partitions has been generalized to include both heat and mass transfer. Experiments were carried out in a large heat-flow apparatus with openings from 3 to 12 in high and with air as the convecting fluid. Because of the high thermal resistance of the partition, the test results for the Nusselt number as a function of the Grashof number based on opening height in the range 10(6) less than Gr less than 10(8) would also be expected to be directly applicable to mass transfer.
