In the present experimental study, the influence of Opening ratio on the chamber temperature in case of vented triangular enclosure with hot base plate has been undertaken. Due to more flow passage, the average air temperature in the enclosure decreases by 12% for OR of 0.25 and 13% for OR of 0.5 compared to OR of 0.125. Similar trend is observed for Rayleigh number with a rise of 73% in OR 0.5 compared to OR of 0.125. Further, the influence of radiation heat transfer in the natural convection based enclosure is also studied. This kind of investigation is useful in the design and analysis of electronic cooling systems.
Key words: Natural Convection / Triangular Enclosure / Opening Ratio / Radiation heat transfer
