The thermal bar phenomenon is modelled numerically by the natural convection of a fluid contained in a two-dimensional triangular domain. The non-rotating case considered here is appropriate to laboratory models of the thermal bar. Three sets of results are presented reflecting varying degrees of nonlinearity. The results are discussed in relation to available theoretical and experimental results.
