Further results for laminar natural convection in a two-dimensional trapezoidal enclosure

Abstract : This paper deals with the numerical solution of laminar natural convection in a trapezoidal enclosure by a control volume based finite element method and the vorticity-stream function formulation. Steady state solutions have been obtained for aspect ratios of 3 and 6 and for Rayleigh numbers ranging from 103 to 2 × 105. Numerical results are presented for the flow patterns and for the average heat transfer characteristics.
