Abstract

Natural convective heat transfer and fluid flow in an open porous cavity filled with a nanofluid is studied numerically using the Tiwari and Das nanofluid model. The transport equations for mass, momentum and energy formulated in dimensionless stream function and temperature are solved numerically using a second-order accurate finite difference method. Particular efforts are focused on the effects of the governing parameters on the heat and fluid flow. It is found that an increase in undulation number of the wavy vertical wall leads to an attenuation of convective flow and a decrease in the heat transfer rate.
