If, on the other hand, no such externally induced flow exists and the flow arises “naturally” from the effect of a density difference, resulting from a temperature or concentration difference in a body force Feld such as gravity, the process is termed natural convection. The density difference gives rise to buoyancy forces due to which the flow is generated. A heated body cooling in ambient air generates such a flow in the region surrounding it. The buoyant flow arising from heat or material rejection to the atmosphere, heating and cooling of rooms and buildings, recirculating flow driven by temperature and salinity differences in oceans, and flows generated by Fres are other examples of natural convection. There has been growing interest in buoyancy-induced flows and the associated heat and mass transfer over the past three decades, because of the importance of these flows in many different areas, such as cooling of electronic equipment, pollution, materials processing, energy systems, and safety in thermal processes. Several books, reviews, and conference proceedings may be consulted for detailed presentations on this subject. See, for instance, the books by Turner (1973), Jaluria (1980), Kakac ¸e t al. (1985), and Gebhart et al. (1988).
