A new benchmark is proposed for the verification of buoyancy-driven flow codes. The benchmark deals with mixing hot and cold fluids from the opposite boundaries of an open channel. A high accurate solution is developed using the Fourier-Galerkin (FG) method and compared to the results of an advanced finite element (FE) model. An excellent agreement is observed between the FG and FE solutions for different Reynolds numbers which demonstrates the viability of the solutions in benchmarking buoyancy-driven flow numerical codes.
