Steady laminar free convection in air from a pair of parallel horizontal cylinders set in a plane inclined with respect to the gravity vector, with the horizontal and vertical positions as special cases, is studied numerically. A specifically developed computer-code based on the SIMPLE-C algorithm is used for the solution of the dimensionless mass, momentum, and energy transfer governing equations. Results are presented for different values of the center-to-center cylinder spacing from 1.4 up to 10 diameters, the tilting angle of the array from 0° to 90°, and the Rayleigh number based on the cylinder-diameter in the range between 103 and 107 .
