Natural convection of a Nano fluid consisted of water and SiO2 in a square enclosure cavity have been studied numerically. The sidewalls are maintained at different constant temperatures and the other walls are thermally insulated. Two-phase mixture model has been used to investigate the hydrodynamic and thermal behaviors of the Nano fluid for various inclination angles of enclosure ranging from…………..
