      I am doing Rayleigh-benard problem simulation inside a square cavity.

      Bottom plate hot, top plate cold, side walls adiabatic.

      In the reference values section can i use, bulk mean temperature as a reference temperature.

      Yes the mean is a good value if you are relying on the Boussinesq approximation for the density.
