The effect of vibration on heat transfer by natural convection has been investigated experimentally using a thin wire, 0.010 in. in diameter, and air as a convection medium. Horizontal reciprocating motion of varying amplitudes, peak-to-peak values of 0–2.655 in., and frequencies, 0–20 cps, was applied to an electrically heated horizontal wire. The average wire velocity (frequency times total path length traveled per cycle by the wire) was used to correlate and predict the experimental results.
