Abstract
In the present work, natural convection in a square cavity filled with an electrically conducting fluid has been numerically investigated in the presence of an inclined magnetic field using lattice Boltzmann method. The vertical walls of this two-dimensional cavity are heated differentially while the horizontal walls are assumed to be adiabatic. The flow and temperature field distributions are obtained and the average Nusselt numbers on the left hot wall is calculated. Available results reveal that both the Hartmann number and the inclination angles of magnetic field have significant influence on the heat transfer.
