In this paper, the effect of inclination angle and magnetic ﬁeld in a two-dimensional porous cavity ﬁlled with Cu-water nanoﬂuid has been studied numerically. The equations are framed using the Darcy-Brinkman-Forchheimer model. The control volume technique is used to solve the governing equations and SIMPLE algorithm is employed for the momentum equations. Comparison test was done with previous available literatures and the results are found to be in good agreement. The results are presented for different values of inclination angle (0 o g 180 o ), Hartmann number (0 Ha 100), Darcy number (10 5 Da 10 1 ) and solid volume fraction (0% 5%) while the porosity e, Rayleigh number Ra and Prandtl number Pr are ﬁxed at 0.6, 10 6 and 6.2, respectively. It is found that the inﬂuence of solid volume fraction is strongly affected by the presence of strong magnetic ﬁeld and the inclination angle 90 o in the porous medium.
