What is it about?

the main objective of the present work is to numerically investigate the effect of free air stream cooling on the outer side walls of a triangular cavity that is filled with air and heated with a constant heat flux at the base. The calculations are implemented by considering the impact of pertinent parameters, such as Rayleigh number (Ra), free stream Reynolds number (Re∞), aspect ratio (AR), and inclination angle (ϕ). The results are represented by stream function (ψ) contours, isotherms (θ) lines, local Nusselt number (Nux) and average Nusselt number (Nuavg) plots.
