Natural Convection Process

This simulation is carried out to study natural convection in a fluid layer with an internal heat source. The Rayleigh and Prandtl numbers are 100,000 and 6.7, respectively. This simulation was carried out on a CRAY T3D using a structured finite element mesh with 20x20x20 cells. The images show the temperature field together with the mesh on three sides corresponding to the steady-state solution. The flow solver and flow visualization software (based on Visual3 library and BoB) were developed by the T*AFSM.
