Abstract: The flow and convective heat transfer in concentric and eccentric horizontal annuli with isothermal wall conditions are studied numerically using two-dimensional finite-difference and finite-element models. The Stream-Function Vorticity and primitive variable formulations are applied to the finite different and finite element methods respectively. The structure mesh is obtained to simulate the buoyancy driven flow. Since the complex geometry configuration of the studied cases, the cylindrical and bipolar coordinates are introduced to solve problems of the finite difference method. The model is also designed by the Galerkin finite element method with Penalty Function Approach.
