[en] Transient, laminar, natural-convection flow of a micropolar-nanofluid (Al2O3/water) in the presence of a magnetic field in an inclined rectangular enclosure is considered. A meshless point collocation method utilizing a velocity-correction scheme has been developed. The governing equations in their velocity–vorticity formulation are solved numerically for various Rayleigh (Ra) and Hartman (Ha) numbers, different nanoparticles volume fractions (φ) and considering different inclination angles and magnetic field directions. The results show that, both, the strength and orientation of the magnetic field significantly affect the flow and temperature fields. For the cases considering herein, experimentally given forms of dynamic viscosity, thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity are utilized.
