Keywords: natural convection, experiment, Fluent software package, conjugate heat transfer, closed parallelepiped, local energy source


An experimental and numerical analysis was performed to investigate the laminar regimes of conjugate thermogravitational convection in a closed parallelepiped with heat-conducting walls of finite thickness in the presence of a local energy source with convective heat exchange with the environment. The numerical studies were performed using the Fluent software. The experimental data and numerical results agree well each other.
