Convective heat transport coefficients are computed from data obtained from a full-scale test in a closely controlled, passive solar sunspace. The subtractive convective heat transport at the surface is calculated from the conductive and radiative fluxes. Methods for calculating these fluxes from measured data, and estimating “best fit” coefficients are presented. The results obtained are found to be in very good agreement with an independent approach used to analyze the same data sets.
