In the present paper, natural convection inside a square cavity with one and three undulations on the top wall has been carried out. The top wall is heated by a spatially varying temperature and other three walls are kept constant lower temperature. The integral forms of the governing equations are solved numerically using finite-volume method in non-orthogonal body-fitted coordinate system. SIMPLE algorithm with higher-order up-winding scheme are used. The streamlines and isothermal lines are presented for different Rayleigh number (103 -106 ) and a fluid having Prandtl number 0.71. Results are presented in the form of local and average Nusselt number distribution for two different undulations (1 and 3) with wave amplitude of 0.05.
