Abstract

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to model mixed convection in a square cavity included circular cylinders motion using an incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics (ISPH) technique. Design/methodology/approach - The problem is solved numerically by using the ISPH method. Findings - The SPH tool shows robust performance to simulate the rigid body motion in the mixed convective flow with heat transfer, and it may apply easily to complicated problems in 2D and 3D problem without difficulties. Originality/value - The application of the SPH method to mixed convective flow with heat transfer and its potential application easily to complicated 3D problems is original.
