Abstract: The main objective of our work is to light out the three-dimensional flow of an Ag-water nanofluid within a lid-driven cubical space which equipped with a spherical heater into its center. Due to its crucial role in the characterization of the main transfer within such configurations, impact of some parameters is widely inspected. It consists the Richardson value (0,05 to 50), the solid volume fraction (0% to 10%), as well as the heater geometry (10% ≤ d ≤ 25%). To do so, a numerical code based on the Lattice-Boltzmann method, coupled with a finite difference one, is used. The latter has been validated after comparison between the present results and those of the literature. It is to note that the three dimensions D3Q19 model is adopted based on a cubic Lattice, where each pattern of the latter is characterized by nineteen discrete speeds.
