Abstract

A numerical study of the natural convection flow arising from a confined thermal source is presented. The physical systemconsidered is a 2D enclosure of square cross-section, containing an isothermal horizontal cylindrical source. The heating body iscentred in the enclosure, and the resulting flow is investigated with respect to the effect of the Prandtl number, for different valuesof the Rayleigh number and of the aspect ratio. The numerical scheme is based on a second order finite-volume discretization ofthe Navier-Stokes equations, solved on orthogonal Cartesian grids. Internal boundaries non-aligned with the grid are subjectedto special treatment. The work focuses on the onset of steady and transitional flows. The asymptotic flow and thermal patternsare investigated, as well as the heat transfer performance of the system
