Title: Experimental Validation Data for Computational Fluid Dynamics of Forced Convection on a Vertical Flat Plate

Abstract

We present computational fluid dynamics (CFD) validation dataset for turbulent forced convection on a vertical plate. The design of the apparatus is based on recent validation literature and provides a means to simultaneously measure boundary conditions (BCs) and system response quantities (SRQs). Important inflow quantities for Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS). CFD are also measured. Data are acquired at two heating conditions and cover the range 40,000 < Re x < 300,000, 357 < Re δ2 < 813, and 0.02 < Gr/Re 2 < 0.232.
