This study presents a numerical investigation for laminar mixed convection flow of radiating gases in an inclined lid-driven cavity. The fluid is treated as a gray, absorbing, emitting and scattering medium. The governing differential equations consisting the continuity, momentum and energy are solved numerically by the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques to obtain the velocity and temperature fields. Discretized forms of these equations are obtained by the finite volume method and solved using the SIMPLE algorithm. Since the gas is considered as a radiating medium, besides convection and conduction, radiative heat transfer also takes place in the gas flow. For computation of the radiative term in the gas energy equation, the radiative transfer equation (RTE) is solved numerically by the discrete ordinate method (DOM). The effect of lid driven speed, on the thermohydrodynamic behavior of two-dimensional cavity is carried out. Results are shown as contours of isotherms, streamlines and distributions of convective and total Nusselt numbers along the bottom wall of cavity. It is revealed that increasing in Reynolds number causes almost uniform temperature distribution in cavity, especially for 30° and 60° inclination angles.
