Abstract Numerical calculations are carried out for the three-dimensional natural convection induced by a temperature difference between a cold outer cubic enclosure and a hot inner sphere. The immersed-boundary method (IBM) to model a sphere based on the finite volume method is used to study a three-dimensional natural convection for different Rayleigh numbers varying in the range of 10 3 –10 6 . This study investigates the effect of the inner sphere location on the heat transfer and fluid… CONTINUE READING
