Solution of magnetohydrodynamic flow in a rectangular duct by differential quadrature method

The polynomial based differential quadrature and the Fourier expansion based differential quadrature method are applied to solve magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow equations in a rectangular duct in the presence of a transverse external oblique magnetic field. Numerical solution for velocity and induced magnetic field is obtained for the steady-state, fully developed, incompressible flow of a conducting fluid inside of the duct. Equal and unequal grid point discretizations are both used in the domain and it is found that the polynomial based differential quadrature method with a reasonable number of unequally spaced grid points gives accurate numerical solution of the MHD flow problem. Some graphs are presented showing the behaviours of the velocity and the induced magnetic field for several values of Hartmann number, number of grid points and the direction of the applied magnetic field.


Numerical solution of magnetohydrodynamic flow problems using the boundary element method
Tezer, Münevver (2005-03-18)
A boundary element solution is given for a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow problem in a rectangular duct having insulating walls, in terms of velocity and induced magnetic field. The coupled velocity and magnetic field equations are first transformed into decoupled nonhomogeneous convection-diffusion type equations and then finding particular solutions, the homogeneous equations are solved using the boundary element method (BEM). The fundamental solutions of the decoupled homogeneous equations themselves are...
Solution of Navier-Stokes Equations Using FEM with Stabilizing Subgrid
Tezer, Münevver; Aydın Bayram, Selma (2009-07-03)
The Galerkin finite element method (FEM) is used for solving the incompressible Navier Stokes equations in 2D. Regular triangular elements are used to discretize the domain and the finite-dimensional spaces employed consist of piece wise continuous linear interpolants enriched with the residual-free bubble (RFB) functions. To find the bubble part of the solution, a two-level FEM with a stabilizing subgrid of a single node is described in our previous paper [Int. J. Numer. Methods Fluids 58, 551-572 (2007)]....
Solution of the nonlinear diffusion equation using the dual reciprocity boundary element method and the relaxation type time integration scheme
Meral, G (2005-03-18)
We present the combined application of the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) and the finite difference method (FDM) with a relaxation parameter to the nonlinear diffusion equation: partial derivative u/partial derivative t = V del(2)u + p(u) at where p(u) is the nonlinear term. The DRBEM is employed to discretize the spatial partial derivatives by using the fundamental solution of the Laplace operator, keeping the time derivative and the nonlinearity as the nonhomogeneous terms in the equatio...
Stabilized FEM solution of MHD duct flow with conducting cracks in the insulation
Tezer, Münevver; AYDIN, SALİM TUTGUN (2023-05-15)
In this paper, the numerical solution of the fully developed liquid–metal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow is given in a rectangular duct under an external oblique magnetic field with no-slip and insulated walls containing crack regions. The coupled MHD flow equations are transformed first into decoupled convection–diffusion equations in terms of the velocity and induced magnetic field. Thus, we apply the SUPG stabilization in the finite element method (FEM) solution procedure for high values of Hartmann numb...
Dual reciprocity boundary element method for magnetohydrodynamic flow using radial basis functions
Tezer, Münevver (2002-02-01)
A dual reciprocity boundary element method is given to obtain the solution in terms of velocity and induced magnetic field for the study of MHD (magnetohydrodynamic) flow through a rectangular duct having insulating walls. The equations are transformed to two types of nonlinear Poisson equations and the right-hand sides in these equations are approximated using combinations of two classes of radial basis functions (the value of the function and its normal derivatives are utilized for approximation). Computa...
