Abstract

This study is about numerical simulation of natural heat transfer inside an inclined square cavity with perfectly conducting boundary conditions for the side walls. The Navier Stokes equations were solved using finite difference approach with uniform mesh procedure. Three different inclination angels were applied and the results are presented in terms of streamlines and isotherms plots. Based on the fluid flow pattern and the isothermal lines behaviour, the convection heat transfer has shown domination over the conduction as the tilt angle increases. The simulation of natural convection inside an air filled-tilted cavity is the first time to be done to the best of our knowledge.
