In this study, an experimental and CFD prediction of natural convection heat transfer in a vertical cylinder (pipe) is done by FLUENT 14.5 solver. Rosseland radiation model available in ANASYS CFD FLUENT 14.5 software will be investigate to find their u sefulness for differe nt parameters and cases as well as their limitation. Simulations will be performed with systematic parameterization to investigate the effect of changing models and parameters. Governing equations are solved using a finite volume method. The set up consist of brass cylinder with air as a working fluid. CFD results and experimental results are compared which validate the software result. The present analytical studies help to give best suitable material for free convection in a vertical cylinder.
