Forced and mixed convection has been investigated experimentally in a full scale passenger aircraft cabin mock-up. The mock-up represents a generic cabin section of the A380 upper deck. Large scale particle image velocimetry (PIV) and temperature field measurements were conducted in a cross sectional plane of the cabin mock-up. The flow fields for two different air inlet configurations were measured and analysed under isothermal and cooling conditions. Furthermore the flow rates at the different air inlet positions were varied while keeping the air exchange rate constant. Our extensive experimental parametric study demonstrates that the flow field in aircraft cabins is affected by various fluid mechanical phenomena. Interaction between the supplied air jets, negative buoyancy forces acting on these air jets and interaction of thermal plumes with the supplied air jets, all influence the flow field inside the cabin. The impact of these effects differs considerably depending on the ventilation configuration and relative mass flow settings at the supply inlets.
