To reduce computational time for simulation of natural convection in open cavities, it is quite common to use a domain restricted to the cavity with approximate boundary conditions at the cavity opening. It had been shown that such approach leads to quite accurate solutions for high Rayleigh number (Ra) flows. Such approach has been extended to flows involving radiative heat transfer as well. However, it is important to note that the effect of radiation on the accuracy of restricted domain approach has not been evaluated. In the present work, a comparison of Nusselt numbers is obtained by restricted domain approach with those obtained by using extended domain approach. The convective as well as radiative Nusselt numbers are considered for comparison for various values of Ra and radiation conduction parameter (Nr). It is observed that the accuracy of the restricted domain approach varies with the radiation conduction parameter as well and the approach is found to be quite accurate for high values of Nr.
