The effects of heat generation in a natural convection flow in an inclined enclosure heated from one side and cooled from the adjacent side under the influence of a magnetic field using staggered grid finite-difference technique is studied. The governing equations are solved numerically for velocity and temperature fields at the mid-horizontal plane for various values of thermal radiation, magnetic field and heat generation parameters by considering three different inclination angles and magnetic field directions and keeping the aspect ratio fixed. The results indicate that the flow pattern and temperature field are significantly dependent on the above mentioned parameters.
