    • Abstract

       

      The fluid flow and convective heat transfer occurring in a lid-driven cavity which is filled with electricity conductive fluid and subjected to external magnetic field, is analyzed comprehensively. The variations in inclination angle of magnetic field and its strength are addressed during the investigation. The cavity is heatedby a linearly varying heat source applied on the left wall. Different regimes of heat transfer are considered by varying pertinent flow-parameters namely Reynolds number (Re), Richardson number (Ri) and Hartmann number (Ha). The effects of magnetic field and the wall motion are studied extensively. The study is carried out using a well-validated in-house CFD code based on finite volume method and SIMPLE algorithm. The obtained results reveal strong influence of Ri and Ha on the heat transfer characterization
