Natural convection is the main mechanism of heat transfer in many natural and technological processes, which makes it urgent to study the possibilities of controlling it. In this work, the processes of development and damping of thermal convection in a flat vertical quasi-two-dimensional layer of magnetic nanofluid are considered experimentally. The presence of the magnetic properties of the nanofluid makes it possible to effectively apply the external magnetic fields to regulate convective heat transfer. The magnetic nanofluid layer was heated from below. It was shown in this work that the imposition of an external uniform stationary magnetic field perpendicular to the temperature gradient leads to the suppression of convection. The processes of heating and cooling the metal plates in a magnetic nanofluid are studied. It is demonstrated that the suppression of convection by a magnetic field leads to a slowdown in the heating of cold and cooling of hot metal plates in a magnetic nanofluid. The obtained results can be considered as a model for understanding similar exchange processes in liquids under the action of magnetic field. View Full-Text
