Steady laminar thermal convection and induced flow in a rotating circular cylinder heated from top with bottom and side walls kept at a uniform temperature were considered and the governing equations were solved numerically. Flow field consists of a single eddy with clockwise rotation for all cases considered. Center of the eddy shifts from a location near the side wall to a location near the top disc as the aspect ratio increases.
