Periodically forced natural convection through the roof of an attic-shaped building
Saha, Suvash C. (2011) Periodically forced natural convection through the roof of an attic-shaped building. In Ahsan, Amimul (Ed.) Convection and Conduction Heat Transfer. INTECH Open Access Publisher, Croatia, pp. 33-54.
In this study, numerical simulations of natural convection in an attic space subject to diurnal temperature condition on the sloping wall have been carried out. An explanation of choosing the period of periodic thermal effect has been given with help of the scaling analysis which is available in the literature. Moreover, the effects of the aspect ratio and Rayleigh number on the fluid flow and heat transfer have been discussed in details as well as the formation of a pitchfork bifurcation of the flow at the symmetric line of the enclosure.
