Vortex shedding and instability of the mixed convection flow over a horizontal cylinder have been studied numerically for different flow directions with respect to the direction of buoyancy—with emphasis on assisting and opposing flows. Nonlinear instability and vortex shedding have been investigated with the help of the Landau equation—that is modified to identify critical Reynolds and Richardson numbers. Effects of flow direction are studied for a representative Richardson number. The average Nusselt number is estimated for all the cases to represent average heat transfer.
