Abstract

The interaction of non-gray radiation and natural convection in a 2-D cavity is studied numerically. The aim of this work is to analyze the thermal and flow behaviors of real cases with a small temperature difference using the full-spectrum k-distribution method. In addition, the results are obtained for different medium assumptions like pure convection, transparent medium, and gray medium to investigate which assumption is appropriate to be used instead of non-gray calculations. The results show that the gray medium assumption for radiative heat transfer is suitable to be used in cavities with normal air mixture at normal room conditions.
