Numerical Studies of Laminar Natural Convection in a Square Cavity with Orthogonal Grid Mesh by Finite Volume Method

Authors

Abstract

In this work a numerical study of thermal and fluid dynamics behavior of natural air convection in a square cavity in a laminar flow is presented, by finite volume method. The square cavity has two walls heated with different temperatures and two isolated walls. The numerical simulation is made up of several Rayleigh numbers to . Flow and isotherm lines are presented and analyzed. The numerical results presented in this work can be used by researchers who work in the natural convection problem.
