In this paper we present the numerical calculations of heat transfer by natural convection and surface radiation in a tilted open cavity. The cavity holds the opposite wall to the aperture at a constant temperature of 500 K, while the surrounding fluid interacting with the aperture is at 300 K. The most important assumptions in the mathematical formulation are three, the flow is laminar, the fluid is radiatively non-participating and the Boussinesq approximation is valid. The conservation equations in primitive variables are solved in a transient form using the finite volume method and the SIMPLEC algorithm. The advective terms are approximated by the SMART scheme and the diffusive terms are approximated using the central differencing scheme. The results in the steady state are obtained for a fixed Rayleigh number of 107, inclination angles from 45° to 180° and aspect rations from 1 to 4.
