Abstract

The purpose of this honors thesis is to create an experiment for the CHEG Lab I course. This is a continuation of work done by Alexa Moreno. She created an experiment to model free convection of a horizontal plate. In this report, free and forced convection of a vertical and horizontal plate, respectively are modeled. This report explains the motivation for creating this heat convection experiment, the results of performing the experiment, and provides recommendations for future work on this experiment. Lab handouts are included in the Appendix.
