Article Preview

This paper presents the results of a numerical study on the mixed convection in a lid-driven enclosure filled with a copper-water nanofluid and induced by two mutually orthogonal heated thin plates. Two different boundary conditions (isothermal boundary condition and isoflux boundary condition) are considered. The coupled gonverning equations are solved numerically by a fully fourth-order accurate compact finite difference method. A parametric study is conducted and a set of graphical results is presented and discussed to elucidate that significant heat transfer enhancement can be obtained due to the presence of nanoparticles.
