TL;DR: In this paper, the authors used mesh refnement and extrapolation to obtain an accurate solution of the equations describing two-dimensional natural convection in a square cavity with differentially heated side walls.
Abstract: Details are given of the computational method used to obtain an accurate solution of the equations describing two-dimensional natural convection in a square cavity with differentially heated side walls. Second-order, central difference approximations were used. Mesh refnement and extrapolation led to solutions for 103⩽Ra⩽10 6 which are believed to be accurate to better than 1 per cent at the highest Rayleigh number and down to one-tenth of that at the lowest value.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, an enthalpy formulation based fixed grid methodology is developed for the numerical solution of convection-diffusion controlled mushy region phase-change problems, where the basic feature of the proposed method lies in the representation of the latent heat of evolution, and of the flow in the solid-liquid mushy zone, by suitably chosen sources.
