The effects of transverse oscillation on free convection from a vertical, finite plate is investigated experimentally. This paper supplements an earlier paper wherein analytical results were reported. In that paper it was reported that oscillation slightly decreases the heat-transfer rate for laminar flow. The experimental results are in accord. However, more important is the fact that the oscillation forces the flow to become turbulent whereby large increases in heat-transfer rate are obtained. Experimental results are given for heat-transfer rate, both laminar and turbulent, and transition.
