Natural convection in a square open cavity with and without the presence of a shrouding wall is analyzed. One vertical wall is heated and the horizontal walls are adiabatic. The other vertical wall is open to the ambient or a fluid reservoir. A shrouding wall is placed in front of this open wall forming a vertical open channel. Laminar and two-dimensional flow is assumed for the Rayleigh number ranging from 103 to 107 and the problem is solved numerically by using the Finite Volume-SOLA method. The average Nusselt number is reported for different values of the Rayleigh number and the distance of the shrouding wall to the open cavity.
