Abstract:In this paper an experimental investigation on mixed convection in air in a heated channel partially filled with an aluminum foam is carried out. The aluminum foam layer is sets on the lower heated wall of the channel. The channel upper plate has a heat transfer toward the external ambient. The investigation allows to evaluate the effect of the aluminum foam on the mixed convection in the heated channel by wall temperature measurements and flow visualization. Results are given for heated channel without and wi… Show more
