If the temperature difference is not sufficient to initiate natural convection, the mechanism of heat transfer is by conduction of the fluid (and radiation for the case where the fluid is a gas). natural convection of air in enclosures, with three aspect ratios (H/W = 1, 2, and 4), within which there is a local heat source on the bottom wall at three different positions, Wh.

This heat source occupies 1% of the total volume of the enclosure. The vertical walls in the enclosures are insulated and there is an opening on the right wall. steady laminar natural convection in air-filled, 2-D rectangular enclosures heated from below and cooled from above is for a wide variety of thermal boundary conditions at the sidewalls with effects of aspect ratio of the enclosure in the range between and 1, and the Rayleigh.
