The problem of combined free and forced convection in an inclined circular tube with uniform peripheral temperature and axial heat flux has been studied experimentally. For fixed Pr and Ra, experimental data showing the effect of tube inclination and Reynolds number on temperature and axial velocity profiles are reported and found to agree qualitatively with the theoretical predictions [7]. Also shown is the variation of Nusselt number with inclination angle for Ra Re = 30,000. No optimum angle for maximum Nusselt number was found.
