    • Abstract


      The present study examines mixed convection in a ventilated cavity saturated with porous substance and heated at the right-bottom and top-left corners under the influence of uniform magnetic field applied externally. The analysis is carried out numerically using in-house CFD code. Five different heating configurationsare analyzed. The effects of pertinent parameters such as Reynolds number (Re = 1–1000), Richardson number (Ri = 0.1–100), Darcy number (Da = 10-7–10-3), Hartmann number (Ha = 1–100), angle of magnetic field (c = 0–180°) and porosity (e = 0.1–1.0), on the flow and temperature fields are examined for the search of the appropriate configuration yielding optimum heat transfer rate. Furthermore, heat transfer characterization at different heating configurations and parametric combinations is assessed
