In the current research, interaction influences of obstacle shape and top wall velocity on the hydrothermal behaviours of the turbulent mixed convection flow in a trapezoidal cavity are numerically simulated. To achieve this goal, three different shapes of the obstacles including semicircular, triangular, rectangular are considered. Dimensions of these obstacles are chosen so that the environment around all three of them is same. The RNG  model is chosen to simulate the turbulent flow. To model the inclined or curved walls of trapezoidal cavity and obstacles, the improved blocked-off method is applied. Results show that the obstacle shape and top wall velocity have a significant influence on the thermal and hydrodynamic behaviours. In fact, the highest magnitude of heat transfer rate along the bottom wall occurs in the cavity with the rectangular obstacle and for the highest magnitude of top wall velocity; whilst its lowest magnitude is related to the pure free convection and for the cavity with the semicircular obstacle. Besides, the lowest and highest magnitudes of temperatures fields occur for the cavities with rectangular and triangular obstacles, respectively.
