Natural Convection, CFD, Porous Medium


The study of natural convection involves analysis of surface geometry that is having fluid- saturated porous medium. Various temperature differences are considered between the two isolated walls, while the top wall considered being an adiabatic. CFD tool and mathematical analysis was studied and analyzed to carry out the research. By the help of study, it is analyzed that higher intensity rate of natural convection. The simulation of the various temperatures and initial moisture contents were carried out to determine the effect on the performance of the natural convection. It has been noticed that temperature over the porous medium is uniformly distributed due to conduction, which is little higher in the fluid region. It has been recorded that the high moisture contents at the higher temperature side wall than lower one.
