Abstract

This study presents a transient two-dimensional computational model of a combined natural convection, conduction, and radiation in a cavity with an aspect ratio of one containing air as a non participant fluid. The cavity has two opaque adiabatic horizontal walls, one opaque isothermal vertical wall The opposite vertical wall is a semitransparent wall that consists of a 6 mm glass sheet with a solar control coating of SnS-Cu*S facing the inside of the cavity permitting solar radiation exchanges between the cavity and its surroundings' The momentum and energy equations in transient state were solved
