    Abstract: This paper presents a numerical study on three-dimensional transient natural convection from an inclined isothermal square plate. The finite difference approach is used to solve the governing equations, in which buoyancy is modeled via the Boussinesq approximation. The complete Navier-Stokes equations are transformed and expressed in term of vortic... Show More
