    The purpose of this report is to study an interesting case of natural convection13; in a cubical cavity. A set of boundary conditions has been applied on the six walls and13; the buoyancy driven xB0;ow inside the cavity is due to the heating of the bottom wall.13; Interestingly two families of distinct steady solutions have been observed. Both the13; families have the same critical Rayleigh number (Ra)crit below which there is no xB0;ow13; and heat transfer is by pure conduction.
