Natural convection heat transfer over a flat plate with a heat source at bottom side of plate is studied experimentally and numerically. We consider the two-dimensional problem of both steady and unsteady natural convection over the flat plate at vertical, horizontal and inclined position. Experimental analysis is done for three different constant heat fluxes for each angle position. The Navier-Stokes and Energy equations with the Boussinesq approximation are written in Cartesian coordinate system. The problem is solved in the physical variables on the basis of a completely implicit Finite element Method order to examine the heat transfer characteristics. To see the effects of different angle position phenomena of natural convection over flat plate, the computational results presented in the form of streamlines for a wide range of Grashof number at different heat fluxes. The average Nusselt number of heated plate for different angle position has been observed.
