The simplified thermal lattice Boltzmann model (STLBM) developed by Peng, Shu and Chew (2003) is used in this work to simulate low-Rayleigh-number natural convection in a heated rectangular cavity on a uniform grid. It is shown how by resorting to the double populations approach both hydrodynamic and thermal fields can be effectively simulated. Furthermore, a general benchmark is carried out to account for the effect of different parameters in relatively wide ranges. Results are compared with previous works available in the literature.
