%X The influence of thermocapillary forces on the buoyancy driven convection flow of cold water, around its anomalous (maximum) density region is investigated. Numerical solution of the governing equations are obtained using an unconditionally stable numerical scheme consisting of Alternating Direction Implicit (ADI) and Successive Over Relaxation (SOR) methods. The heat transfer rate calculated in terms of Nusselt number (Nu), is found to be a nonlinear function of hot wall temperature (*θ*_{h}), whereas in fluids with absence of anomalous density the Nusselt number is a linearly increasing function of *θ*_{h}.
