%X A computational study has been performed to solve the heat transfer and fluid flow problem in a triangular enclosure
filled with nanofluids. It also has a moving fin in its top side. Three different cases are considered: a fixed fin (*V* = 0), a fin rotating clockwise (*V*+), and a fin rotating counterclockwise (*V*–). The cavity is heated and cooled from inclined walls and its bottom wall is adiabatic. Three-dimensional governing equations are solved by using the finite volume method. Other governing parameters are the Rayleigh number 10^{3} ≤ Ra ≤ 10^{6} and nanoparticle volume fraction 0.0 ≤ φ ≤ 0.15. It is found
that heat transfer can be controlled via both a moving lid and particle addition into the base fluid.
