Overall heat transfer measurements and temperature profiles were obtained for free convection in a narrow, vertical, two-dimensional layer with a vertical baffle. This configuration was chosen to model commonly used coolant channels in nuclear reactors. The results show that there is no appreciable reduction of the overall free-convection heat transfer, although fairly significant changes do occur in the local temperature profiles.
