Effect of boundary conditions on magnetohydrodynamics duct flow

2017-12-01
The magnetohydrodynamic flow of an incompressible, viscous and electrically conducting fluid is investigated numerically in a channel of either rectangular or semi-infinite cross-section with several types of boundary conditions involving walls of variable conductivity in the presence of hydrodynamic slip. The flow is fully developed and driven by a constant pressure gradient in the axial direction under a uniform external inclined magnetic field. The governing differential equations coupled in velocity and induced magnetic field are discretized by a direct boundary element method in which the employed fundamental solution is able to treat the equations in their original coupled form. Thus, the resulting system of equations involving the unknown values of velocity, induced magnetic field and their normal derivatives, according to the adopted boundary conditions, only on the boundary of the duct is small in size and is solved at one stroke with no iteration. The numerical simulations are carried out for several values of slip length, wall conductivity parameter, Hartmann number and the inclination angle of the external magnetic field. The results are visualized basically in terms of velocity and induced magnetic field distributions along the vertical centerline of the cavity to analyze the influence of the slip on the system of magnetohydrodynamic flow.

The steady, laminar, fully developed MHD flow of an incompressible, electrically conducting fluid with temperature dependent viscosity is studied in a rectangular duct together with its heat transfer. Although the induced magnetic field is neglected due to the small Reynolds number, the Hall effect, viscous and Joule dissipations are taken into consideration. The momentum equation for the pipe-axis velocity and the energy equation are solved iteratively. Firstly, the momentum equation is solved by using the...
Controlling the power law fluid flow and heat transfer under the external magnetic field using the flow index and the Hartmann number

The direct and optimal control solution of laminar fully developed, steady Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) flow of an incompressible, electrically conducting power-law non-Newtonian fluid in a square duct is considered with the heat transfer. The fluid is subjected to an external uniform magnetic field as well as a constant pressure gradient. The apparent fluid viscosity is both a function of the unknown velocity and the flow index which makes the momentum equation nonlinear. Viscous and Joule dissipation terms ...
