Analysis of natural convection in a square cavity with a thin partition for linearly heated side walls

Analysis of natural convection in a square cavity with a thin partition for linearly heated side... Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to optimize the heat transfer rate in square cavity by attaching fin at the bottom wall. Design/methodology/approach – The problem is formulated and solved using finite element method. Accuracy of the method is validated by comparisons with previously published work. Findings – It was found that attaching fin reduces heat transfer rate in the cavity. Originality/value – Although the problem is not very original it is important in that many applications have heating on adjacent walls. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat and Fluid Flow Emerald Publishing
