Abstract


This article presents a numerical study on natural convection heat transfer of nanofluid (Cu-water) in a square enclosure having a cold obstacle. The transport equations were solved using the finite difference formulation based on Alternating Direction Implicit method (ADI method). The method used is validated against previous works. Effects of various design parameters such as the height of the obstacle (0.125≤H≤0.5), Rayleigh number (〖10〗^3 ≤ Ra ≤ 〖10〗^6), and nanoparticles volume fraction (0 ≤ φ ≤ 0.2) on the heat transfer are investigated. The results show that the heat transfer rate inside the enclosure increases by increasing the height of the cold block, the volume fraction of nanoparticles and Rayleigh number.
