Convection in a channel subject to a distributed sinusoidal bump like heating applied at the lower wall has been studied. It is found that small wave number heating provides large plumes whereas large wave number heating provides a uniform temperature distribution at the upper part of the channel. Heat transfer is more efficient at low Reynolds number with small wave number heating.
