For a variety of fields in which micro-mechanical systems and electronic components are used, fluid flow and heat transfer at the microscale needs to be understood and modeled with an acceptable reliability. In general, models are prepared by making some extensions to the conventional theories by including the scaling effects that become important for microscale. Some of these effects are; axial conduction, viscous dissipation, and rarefaction. In addition to these effects, temperature variable thermal conductivity and viscosity may become important in microscale gas flows due to the high temperature gradients that may exist in the fluid. For this purpose, simultaneously developing, single phase, laminar and incompressible air flow in a microtube and in the micro gap between parallel plates is numerically analyzed. Navier-Stokes and energy equations are solved and the variation of Nusselt number along the channel is presented in tabular and graphical forms as a function of Knudsen, Peclet, and Brinkman numbers, including temperature variable thermal conductivity and viscosity.


Effects of optical design modifications on thermal performance of a highly reflective HfO2/SiO2/TiO2 three material coating
OCAK, M.; Sert, Cüneyt; Okutucu-Ozyurt, T. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-02-01)
Effects of layer thickness modifications on laser induced temperature distribution inside three material, highly reflective thin film coatings are studied with numerical simulations. As a base design, a 21 layer coating composed of HfO2, SiO2 and TiO2 layers of quarter wave thickness is considered. First, the laser induced temperature distribution in this base design is obtained. Then the layer thicknesses of the base design are modified and the corresponding temperature distributions in four alternative no...
Modeling of particle-resin suspension impregnation in compression resin transfer molding of particle-filled, continuous fiber reinforced composites
Sas, Hatice Sinem; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-03-01)
A particle-resin suspension impregnation model is used for analyzing the mold filling process in compression resin transfer molding (CRTM) of particle-filled, continuous fiber composites. The model is based on Darcy flow coupled with particle filtration and is applicable to two-dimensional impregnation through isotropic/anisotropic fiber preforms. Comparisons with simple analytical solutions and experimental results from the literature were made to validate the numerical solution. Simulations showed that CR...

In this study, the effect of surface roughness on convective heat transfer in two-dimensional parallel plate microchannels is analyzed numerically for steady-state, single-phase, developing, and laminar air flow in the slip flow regime. Slip velocity and temperature jump at wall boundaries are imposed to observe the rarefaction effect. The effect of triangular roughness elements on Nusselt number are compared to cases with smooth surfaces. The results indicate that increasing surface roughness reduces heat ...
An experimental investigation on performance of annular fins on a horizontal cylinder in free convection heat transfer
Yildiz, S; Yüncü, Hafit (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-02-01)
Natural convection heat transfer in annular fin-arrays mounted on a horizontal cylinder was experimentally investigated. An experimental set-up was constructed to investigate heat transfer characteristics of 18 sets of annular fin-arrays mounted on a horizontal cylinder of 24.9-mm diameter in atmospheric conditions. Keeping the fin thickness fixed at 1 mm, fin diameter is varied from 35 mm to 125 mm and fin spacing is varied from 3.6 mm to 31.7 mm. The base-to-ambient temperature difference was also varied ...
Effect of heat transfer on stability and transition characteristics of boundary-layers
Özgen, Serkan (Elsevier BV, 2004-10-01)
Stability and transition problems of two dimensional boundary-layers with heated walls have been studied numerically using the linear stability theory. Incompressible stability equations have been modified to account for the variation of temperature dependent fluid properties across the layer. The equations obtained have been solved with an efficient shoot-search technique. Low speed flows of air and water have been analyzed with a wide range of heat transfer rates. In addition to the mean velocity profile ...
