# FEM solution of natural convection flow in square enclosures under magnetic field

2013-01-01
Purpose - The purpose of the paper is to obtain finite element method (FEM) solution of steady, laminar, natural convection flow in inclined enclosures in the presence of an oblique magnetic field. The momentum equations include the magnetic effect, and the induced magnetic field due to the motion of the electrically conducting fluid is neglected. Quadratic triangular elements are used to ensure accurate approximation for second order derivatives of stream function appearing in the vorticity equation.

 BOUNDARY-ELEMENT METHOD SOLUTION OF MHD FLOW IN A RECTANGULAR DUCT Tezer, Münevver (Wiley, 1994-05-30) The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of an incompressible, viscous, electrically conducting fluid in a rectangular duct with an external magnetic field applied transverse to the flow has been investigated. The walls parallel to the applied magnetic field are conducting while the other two walls which are perpendicular to the field are insulators. The boundary element method (BEM) with constant elements has been used to cast the problem into the form of an integral equation over the boundary and to obtain a sy...
 Boundary element solution of unsteady magnetohydrodynamic duct flow with differential quadrature time integration scheme Bozkaya, Canan; Tezer, Münevver (Wiley, 2006-06-20) A numerical scheme which is a combination of the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) and the differential quadrature method (DQM), is proposed for the solution of unsteady magnetohydro-dynamic (MHD) flow problem in a rectangular duct with insulating walls. The coupled MHD equations in velocity and induced magnetic field are transformed first into the decoupled time-dependent convection-diffusion-type equations. These equations are solved by using DRBEM which treats the time and the space deriva...
 MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC FLOW IN ELECTRODYNAMICALLY COUPLED RECTANGULAR DUCTS Tezer, Münevver (Wiley, 1988-06-01) In Sezgin1,2 the problems considered are the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flows in an electrodynamically conducting infinite channel and in a rectangular duct respectively, in the presence of an applied magnetic field. In the present paper we extend the solution procedure of these papers to two rectangular channels connected by a barrier which is partially conductor and partially insulator. The problem has been reduced to the solution of a pair of dual series equations and then to the solution of a Fredholm's ...
 MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC FLOW IN AN INFINITE CHANNEL Tezer, Münevver (Wiley, 1986-09-01) The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of an incompressible, viscous, electrically conducting fluid in an infinite channel, under an applied magnetic field has been investigated. The MHD flow between two parallel walls is of considerable practical importance because of the utility of induction flowmeters. The walls of the channel are taken perpendicular to the magnetic field and one of them is insulated, the other is partly insulated, partly conducting. An analytical solution has been developed for the velocity...
 FEM solution of MHD flow in an array of electromagnetically coupled rectangular ducts Tezer-Sezgin, M.; Aydin, S. Han (Inderscience Publishers, 2020-01-01) The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of an electrically conducting fluid is studied in an array of identical parallel ducts stacked in the direction of external magnetic field and are separated by conducting walls of arbitrary thickness. Such arrangement of electromagnetically coupled ducts arises in fusion blanket applications in which a liquid metal is used both as coolant and tritium generation. The finite element method (FEM) with SUPG stabilisation is used for solving the set of coupled MHD equations. Nu...
