The process of fully developed turbulent flow of air in a vertical parallel-plate channel that is induced entirely by buoyancy due to the difference in density between the air inside and outside of the channel is studied analytically, taking full account of the effects of asymmetric heating of the channel and surface radiation from the hotter plate to the cooler plate. The present model is employed to predict the performance of an innovative reactor air-cooling system under shutdown heat removal conditions.
