In this paper, three-dimensional finite-volume numerical procedure has been used to solve the convective heat transfer coefficient (CHTC) and temperature distribution for two different geometries of internal room with side heated surfaces. A model room having the size of 80×60×60 cm dimensions is considered in this simulation. The temperature field is determined for various combinations of air-change per hour (5, 10, 15 and 20) and geometrical parameters to show some of the flow field characteristics.
