Abstract: The present study is the first experimental investigation for the combined influences of wind speed, aperture ratio and tilt angle on the convective heat losses from a heated cavity. A complex inter-dependence was found between wind speed, aperture ratio and convective heat losses, which can vary by up to 75%. Varying the tilt angle from 15° - 45° was found to have a relatively small effect on heat losses compared with the wind speed and aperture ratio.
