    No convection heat transfer from hot fluid to cold solid

    Matthew Cherng

      A 3kW heating plate was placed below an aluminum plate (initially 20C) contained in a box, where the bottom and top lids are set to atmospheric pressure allowing natural convection. However little to no heat transfer was observed during the 40 second transient flow simulation between the hot air in contact with the aluminum plate. How would I go about to fix this?
