# Turbulent thermal convection in a cell with ordered rough boundaries

@inproceedings{TurbulentTC, title={Turbulent thermal convection in a cell with ordered rough boundaries}, author={} }

A novel convection experiment is conducted in a cell with rough upper and lower surfaces. The measured heat transport in the rough cell is found to be increased by more than 76%. Flow visualization and near-wall temperature measurements reveal new dynamics for the emission of thermal plumes. The experiment shows that the interaction between the horizontal shear flow due to the large-scale circulation and the ordered rough surface creates a secondary flow (eddies) in the groove region.
