Mixed convection is an important heat and mass transfer mechanism in the YMP drifts prior to the repository closure. There is little information in the literature on mixed turbulent convection for a similar horizontal annulus configuration. A model was developed using the Morgan approach, combining forced and natural convection models. A rigorous uncertainty analysis was performed. Comparisons between the mixed convection model and experimental values showed agreement for the inner cylinder. The model consistently under-predicted heat transfer from the outer cylinder. The methodology was later employed in the analysis to predict the heat transfer associated with a full scale ventilated emplacement drift.
