Abstract. This contribution describes a multiphase CFD model, capable of simulating convective mass and heat transfer in a ferrofluid. The model was used for a parametric analysis of thermomagnetic convection, demonstrating 1.3-fold enhancement of thermal efficiency under the influence of an external magnetic field. The model was validated against two different experimental datasets.
