The results of a numerical modeling of thermo-gravitational convection of abnormally thermo-viscous fluid in a closed square cavity with two vertical adiabatic walls and two horizontal isothermal walls are presented. A model Newtonian liquid for which the dependence of viscosity on temperature is described by a bell function (Gaussian curve) is considered. The natural convection of inhomogeneous liquid is described by the closed mathematical model based on the continuous mechanics equations written in Oberbeck-Boussinesq approximation, where the fluid density is a linear function of temperature. To simulate the fluid flow dynamics, the modified computer code based on the implicit finite volume method and SIMPLE-type algorithm with the second-order temporal accuracy is realized using multiprocessor technology. The effect of the viscosity abnormality on stationary modes of convective flows are studied, the integral heat transfer coefficients in a flat cell are calculated.
