Performance of rectangular fins on a vertical base in free convection heat transfer
Yazıcıoğlu, Burak; Yüncü, Hafit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
The steady-state natural convection heat transfer from vertical rectangular fins extending perpendicularly from vertical rectangular base was investigated experimentally. The effects of geometric parameters and base-to-ambient temperature difference on the heat transfer performance of fin arrays were observed and the optimum fin separation values were determined. Two similar experimental set-ups were employed during experiments in order to take measurements from 30 different fin configurations having fin le...
Modeling of fluid -vapor interface in the condensation zone of a grooved heat pipe
Alipour, Mobin; Dursunkaya, Zafer; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
Condensation in grooved heat pipes involves several simultaneous phenomena including vapor-liquid boundaries whose shapes are unknown a priori, fluid flow due to capillary and dispersion pressure gradients and condensation over ultra thin films. In grooved heat pipes, the majority of condensation occurs on fin tops due to the thinner liquid film, having a lower thermal resistance, compared to inside the groove where the fluid is substantially thicker. Majority of the studies in the literature assume an appr...
Numerical simulation of thermal convection under the influence of a magnetic field by using solenoidal bases
Yarımpabuç, Durmuş; Tarman, Işık Hakan; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
The effect of an imposed magnetic field on the thermal convection between rigid plates heated from below under the influence of gravity is numerically simulated in a computational domain with periodic horizontal extent. The numerical technique is based on solenoidal basis functions satisfying the boundary conditions for both velocity and induced magnetic field. The expansion bases for the thermal field are also constructed to satisfy the boundary conditions. The governing partial differential equations are ...
