Many studies have been devoted to the interaction between natural convection and radiation heat transfer in a differentially heated cavity. This problem has already been treated using the Boussinesq approximation. The main purpose of this study is to extend this interaction to the low Mach number approximation (in 3D), for both transparent and participating media. The Navier-Stokes and energy equations written for an ideal gas are solved using a finite volume method, while the discrete ordinates method is used to solve the radiation transfer equation. The coupling between the energy equation and the radiation transfer is done by adding an additional source term in the energy equation and via the radiation heat exchange between the surfaces bounding the computation domain. The work is first validated using the Boussinesq approximation mainly by investigating the distribution of the heat flux on the hot isothermal wall. Then some simulations are presented highlighting the differences between the low Mach number and the Boussinesq approximations.
