Abstract

The natural convection heat transfer in the porous medium within a two-dimensional square cavity caused by uneven temperature distribution is studied using LBM. The flow field and temperature field of fluid in the porous medium are obtained by numerically simulating. The effect of porosity on the natural convection heat transfer is emphatically studied, and the natural convection heat transfer under variable pore distribution is also preliminarily discussed.
