Hi guys, here's a short question for you:

What's the definition of "forced flow"?

I think it's defined as an air flow that is induced due to the supply of mechanical energy. This is opposed to the movement of air by buoyancy alone. The former is often called 'forced convection', the latter 'natural convection'.
