Free convection flow over vertical flat plate

Hi all,

I'm simulating a free convection flow over vertical flat plate in 2 dimentional coordinate by using CFX program. And I have a problem in CFD which need some suggestion about boundary condition now.

My domain is air at 300 K. I perform a geometry as a rectangular that has one grid thick . One side ( vertical left side)of the regtangular is a hot plate, temperature = 323 K. I set boundary condition at the bottom side to inlet boundary by given an entrance velocity = 0.0 m/s and the top one to outlet boundary condition by specify reference static pressure to 0.0(reference pressure = 101325 Pa). And then set the symmetry plane at an opposite side of hot plate.
