    • Abstract


      The problem of combined, natural and forced convection for the laminar flow in a vertical channel of equilateral triangular cross-section is discussed. Internal heat generation is assumed to be uniform. The coupled equations in velocity and temperature are solved using equitriangular transform. Expressions for pressure drop parameter and Nusselt number are obtained and their behaviour for different values of Rayleigh number and heat generation function, is studied.
