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.
