要約

Numerical and analytical studies are carried out to investigate natural convection in an inclined porous cavity filled with a volumetric heat source. Heat fluxes are imposed on the sidewalls to ensure a cooling process. The Darcy model is taken into account in the mathematical formulation of the problem. The density variation is modeled by Boussinesq approximation as the temperature values are limited. Numerical solutions are obtained for a wide range of governing parameters such as aspect ratio A, Rayleigh number R, inclination angle φ, and the dimensionless heat flux at the left active wall qL. The analytical solution is based on the parallel flow approximation and valid for A » 1. The results elucidate an asymptotic tendency of the rate heat transfer with Rayleigh number. The normalized Nusselt number NuL reach the maximum when φ = 80 deg and qL = 0.75. A good agreement between the analytical model and the numerical simulations is obtained in the case of a tall cavity.
