Regulating the temperature of a room or a building at an ideal temperature for comfort has always been a concern for designers of air conditioning systems. The high cost of energy for heating as well as the risks associated with the use of fossil fuel heating systems have made the use of radiators more attractive.
Natural convection heat transfer is the most convenient and least costly method for using such heating systems.
Buoyancy or natural heat transferring in this analysis has been analyzed by a radiator as a thermal source. Radiator with heat flux generates 2KW heat. Due to the heat of the fluid around the radiator, the fluid density decreases and move upward. The fluid will start to circulate and the room will begin to warm up slowly.
In natural convection problems, the only driving force is produced when fluid density changes. Since the density is a function of temperature, therefore the identification of the temperature field is necessary for solving velocity field. So it is important to solve momentum and energy equations simultaneously.
