The objective of this study is to find heat emission characteristics on the natural convection radiator in a heating system when the aspect ratio of radiator is changed. In addition the computer simulation method is used in order to find the characteristics of heat transfer. When the width of the radiator is long and the height of radiator is short, the temperature difference from the floor level 0.5m to about 2.7m above the floor is small. It shows that thermal environment in heating space is good than the other case. For the future, I hope to compare the results between the computer simulation and experimental method for reliability.
