Abstract

Heat transfer by free convection caused by buoyancy and thermomagnetic effects in a magnetic liquid cooled from below or above was investigated experimentally and numerically. The aim was to explore the degree by which heat transfer may be enhanced or controlled using magnetic fields. The results suggest that the heat transfer may be moderately increased over convection, and that natural convection may be effectively switched on or off using appropriately positioned magnets. © BHR Group 2005 Process Intensification 6.
