Turbulent natural convection along an asymmetrically heated vertical channel was investigated using experimental and computational techniques. Uniform wall temperature (UWT) boundary condition was considered. Velocity and air temperature measurements across the channel at different elevations were made, The commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code PHOENICS was used for numerical analysis. Good agreement was obtained between the experimental and numerical results.
