Natural convection heat transfer from a single horizontal cylinder near an isothermal wall is experimentally investigated in the environmental chamber. When cylinder is heated the plume rising from the heated cylinder interacts with the wall and significantly affects the surface heat transfer distribution. Thus, the distance between horizontal cylinder and side wall can influence the heat transfer. The heat transfer from heated cylinder with different distances was compared. It was found that the influence of the wall on the convection heat transfer from the circular cylinder began when the distance between the wall and cylinder is less than 80 mm.
