AbstractThis paper presents the results of full scale experiments to evaluate natural convective heat and mass transfer through doorway-like apertures under small temperature differentials. The zone-to-zone temperature differences were nominally between 1 °C and 2.5 °C. Heat transfer correlations, coefficient of discharge, and thermal stratification are reported for air (Pr = 0.71), aperture height relative to the enclosure height in the range 0. 75 to 1, and aperture width relative to the enclosure width in the range 0.29 to0.79. Results have, generally, agreed with previous theoretical and experimental work in literature.
