Numerical Analysis on Natural Convection from Dual Heating Element in an Enclosure

[MuhammedShefeek K,Venkitraj K P] Volume 1: Issue 2, April 2014

Thispaper reports the results of numerical investigation on natural convection in a three dimensional rectangular enclosure with heated parallel vertical plates located inside the enclosure. Simulation has been performed used commercial computational fluid dynamics package. The effect of spacing between the heated vertical plates and heat input on the flow and heat transfer characteristics inside the enclosure will be explored and discussed.
