Unsteady MHD mixed convection flow in a lid-driven cavity with a heated wavy wall

Bozkaya, Canan
The unsteady mixed convection flow under the effect of an externally applied uniform magnetic field is investigated numerically in a lid-driven cavity with a sinusoidal wavy wall. The governing equations given in terms of stream function, vorticity and temperature are discretized by using the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) in space and a two-level time integration scheme is employed in time discretization. The simulations focus on the effects of several physical parameters, namely Hartmann and Rayleigh numbers, Joule heating parameter, the inclination angle of magnetic field and number of undulation of wavy wall on the flow and temperature distribution. Moreover, the stability analysis of the numerical method is performed in terms of time increment and time relaxation parameters for various combinations of the problem controlling parameters.


Intersonic shear crack growth along weak planes
Rosakis, Ares J.; Samudrala, Omprakash; Çöker, Demirkan (Informa UK Limited, 2000-01-01)
Classical dynamic fracture theories predict the Rayleigh surface wave speed (cR) to be the limiting speed of propagation for mode-I cracks in constitutively homogeneous, isotropic, linear elastic materials subjected to remote loading. For mode-II cracks, propagating along prescribed straight line paths, the same theories, while excluding the possibility of crack growth in the speed regime between cR and the shear wave speed, cs, do not exclude intersonic (cs<υ<cl) crack tip speeds. In the present study, we ...
An accurate nonlinear 3d Timoshenko beam element based on Hu-Washizu functional
Soydas, Ozan; Sarıtaş, Afşin (Elsevier BV, 2013-09-01)
An accurate 3d mixed beam element that is efficient especially in nonlinear analysis is presented in this paper. The mathematical theory is based on Hu-Washizu principle that uses three-fields in the variational form. The composition of the variational form ensures independent selection of displacement, stress and strain fields. Timoshenko beam theory is extended to three dimensions for deriving strains from displacement field. Numerical integration of stress strain relations along control sections is carri...
Extensive deformation behavior of an all-oxide Al2O3-TiO2 nanostructured multilayer ceramic at room temperature
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi; Kagawa, Yutaka (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2009-11-01)
An all-oxide Al2O3-TiO2 ceramic multilayer composed of 10-100 nm thick alternating layers was fabricated using the reactive magnetron sputtering process. Microindentation tests were carried out on the multilayer ceramic followed by microstructural observations of the cross-sections of the indented sites to characterize the indentation response of the system. During the observations, it was noted that an extensive room temperature "deformation" occurred in the multilayer ceramic material. The material shows ...
Structural, electrical and anisotropic properties of Tl4Se3S chain crystals
QASRAWI, ATEF FAYEZ HASAN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2009-10-01)
The structure, the anisotropy effect on the current transport mechanism and the space charge limited current in Tl4Se3S chain crystals have been studied by means of X-ray diffraction, electrical conductivity measurements along and perpendicular to the crystal's c-axis and the current voltage characteristics. The temperature-dependent electrical conductivity analysis in the region of 150-400 K, revealed the domination of the thermionic emission of charge carriers over the chain boundaries above 210 and 270 K...
Microstructural and texture evolution during thermo-hydrogen processing of Ti6Al4V alloys produced by electron beam melting
Dogu, Merve Nur; ESEN, ZİYA; Davut, Kemal; Tan, Evren; Gumus, Berkay; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Elsevier BV, 2020-10-01)
The present study was conducted to reveal the effects of building angles and post heat-treatments (2-step Thermo-Hydrogen Processing (THP) and conventional annealing treatment) on the density, microstructure and texture of Ti6Al4V alloy parts produced by Electron Beam Melting (EBM). The results showed that regardless of the building angle; the density, microstructure and crystallographic texture (defined with respect to building angle) of the as-produced samples were identical; having Widmanstatten a struct...
