For cold dark matter models, images of temperature fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background (CMB), due to Sunyaev Zel’dovich (SZ) effect have been been simulated taking a cosmolgical distribution of clusters into account. All the models are normalised to the 4-year COBE data. The image statistics are compared with the ATCA limits on arcmin scale anisotropy. The comparison appears to favour low-Ω0 open universe models.
