Warm Air Rising Through A Tower
Hey Guys,

I had a simple question. I'm modeling warm air rising through a hollow, cylindrical tower. I was wondering if there were simple equations for the draft rate, Q, as a function of (among other things) the degree of tilt of the tower with respect vertical. I would like to compare the expected draft rate with the results of my simulations. I imagine that at relatively horizontal tower slants, the results will deviate more as the flow becomes more turbulent?
