Finite volume numerical computations are carried out in order to obtain a correlation for free convective heat transfer in large air channels bounded by one isothermal plate and one adiabatic plate. Surface radiation between plates and different inclination angles are considered. The numerical results are verified by means of a post-processing tool to estimate their uncertainty due to discretization. A final validation process is performed by comparing the numerical data to experimental fluid flow and heat transfer data obtained from an ad-hoc experimental setup.
