The inability to control this thermal ramp eventually led to forced convection reflow winning the day, because having multiple heating zones allowed the process engineer to sculpt a thermal profile for a board, raising the temperature to reflow in stages at a controlled ramp, permitting the various materials in a PCB (e.g., copper layers, epoxy-glass laminate, and components with widely varying tolerances to variations in TCE or delta T) to equilibrate in temperature, minimizing the potentially damaging effects of thermal stress.

[6] the numerical investigation of effect of cross-buoyancy mixed convection of flow field and heat transfer characteristics a long semi-circular cylinder in a confined channel has been studied in laminar regime by solving the governing equations, the results have been presented and discussed for range of conditions: Re = 1 to 40, Ri = 0 to 4, Pr = 0.71 to 50, [beta] = 16.6% to 50%, they found that, the drag coefficient increases with Ri number and/or blockage ratio.
