DRBEM Solution of the Double Diffusive Convective Flow

2015-09-18
A numerical investigation of unsteady, two-dimensional double diffusive convection flow through a lid-driven square enclosure is carried on. The left and bottom walls of the enclosure are either uniformly or non-uniformly heated and concentrated, while the right vertical wall is maintained at a constant cold temperature. The top wall is insulated and it moves to the right with a constant velocity. The numerical solution of the coupled nonlinear differential equations is based on the use of dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) in spatial discretization and an unconditionally stable backward implicit finite difference scheme for the time integration. Due to the coupling and the nonlinearity, an iterative process is employed between the equations. The boundary only nature of the DRBEM and the use of the fundamental solution of Laplace equation make the solution process computationally easier and less expensive compared to other domain discretization methods. The study focuses on the effects of uniform and non-uniform heating and concentration of the walls for various values of physical parameters on the double-diffusive convection in terms of streamlines, isotherms and isoconcentration lines.

The dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) is applied for solving steady free convection in special shape enclosures filled with a fluid saturated porous medium under the effect of a magnetic field. The left and right walls are maintained at constant or different temperatures while the top and bottom walls are kept adiabatic. The effect of the external magnetic field on the flow and temperature behavior is visualized with different Rayleigh numbers Ra, Hartmann numbers Ha and inclination angle phi...

In this thesis, the direct and inverse problems of the MHD flow in rectangular ducts are solved in terms of the velocity of the fluid and the induced magnetic field by using the Dual Reciprocity Boundary Element Method (DRBEM). The two-dimensional, steady flow of a viscous, incompressible, and electrically conducting fluid is considered under the effect of an externally applied mangetic field. The duct wall conditions for the MHD flow ranges from the no-slip to slip and insulated to perfectly conducting. In...

In this work, ferrofluid flow and heat transfer in a semicircular annulus enclosure filled with Fe3O4- water nanaofluid is studied in the presence of an externally applied magnetic field. The inner and outer circular walls are maintained at constant temperature and two straight boundaries at the bottom are considered adiabatic. The governing equations which are consistent with the principles of ferrohydrodynamics (FHD) and magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) are discretized by using the dual reciprocity boundary ele...

In this paper, we investigate the fully developed, laminar, forced convection flow of an electrically non-conducting, viscous, biomagnetic fluid in the 2D cross-section (cavity) of a long impermeable pipe. The fluid is under the influence of a point magnetic source placed below the cavity. The dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) with constant and linear elements is used for solving the governing equations resulting from the Navier-Stokes and energy equations together with magnetization and buoy...
