We present high-precision measurements of the Nusselt number N as a function of the Rayleigh number R for cylindrical samples of water (Prandtl number σ = 4.38) with diameters D = 49.7, 24.8, and 9.2 cm, all with aspect ratio Γ ≡ D/L 1 (L is the sample height). In addition, we present data for D = 49.7 and Γ = 1.5, 2, 3, and 6. For each sample the data cover a range of a little over a decade of R. For Γ 1 they jointly span the range 10 R 10. Where needed, the data were corrected for the… CONTINUE READING
