Abstract

The moving particle semi-implicit (MPS) method, which is a fully Lagrangian particle method, was applied to simulate the three-dimensional Rayleigh-Benard convection. The present MPS simulation reproduced typical flow patterns observed in the Rayleigh-Benard convection successfully. The results are in good agreement with those obtained by the method in the frame of the Euler system. The present results demonstrate the applicability of the MPS method to three-dimensional convective heat transfer problems.
