In this paper, effect of a horizontalisothermal wall on the natural convection heat transfer from a horizontal cylinder is numerically studied.For this purpose, effect of wall when it is located above the cylinder at various Rayleigh numbers and wall vertical positions are studiedand compared with the situation that wall is adiabatic. Fluent software is used to simulate the problem.Comparison of simulation results with available numerical results,confirms the accuracy of simulation. Simulation results show that in low wall distance from the cylinder,the isothermal wall causes an increase in meanNusselt number. By increasing this distance, mean Nusselt number decreases until reaching a minimum value. By more increase of this distance mean Nusselt number increases. Also, it is considered that in the case of isothermal wall Nusseltnumber is higher rather than adiabatic wall.
