Laminar free convection is studied experimentally in a box with differentially heated endwalls that is divided by a barrier into two connected chambers. We investigate how the steady-state circulation, the temperature field and the transport of heat and mass depend on the height and position of the barrier. We find that the temperature fields in the two chambers are very different and that a complex flow structure develops, featuring a fast overflow of the barrier, a number of shear layers...[Show more]
