A flow over hot water film in horizontal channel (Poiseuille–Benard flow) is studied experimentally and by means of CFD. Averaged temperature and concentration fields were measured in central transverse plane using RTD and capacitive humidity probe for different Ri = Gr/Re2. A similarity of thermal and concentration field is discussed and the influence of thermal and humidity field by radiative heat transfer is investigated since it has a considerable effect. Same cases are modeled by CFD in commercial code Star-CCM+. Simulated thermal and concentration fields shows similar character as those from measurements when radiative heat transfer mode is considered.
