Abstract : In the present study, a CFD analysis of a vertical plate with heat generating sources subjected to natural convection phenomenon is performed. The effect of each individual strip heater over the flat plate assembly which mimics the cooling of the electronic systems is studied. The geometry, the grid generation and the simulations with appropriate boundary conditions are carried out using COMSOL Multiphysics. Mesh independence test has been carried out. Prior to the actual simulations, the numerical code is validated. A test case of constant temperature vertical plate is simulated and the obtained results, i.e., the average heat transfer coefficient is compared with the standard empirical correlation results. Influence of the strip heaters on the vertical plate is elucidated in terms of temperature, velocity and heat transfer coefficient variations
