This study proposes the dual reciprocity boundary element (DRBEM) solution for full magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) equations in a lid-driven square cavity. MHD equations are coupled with the heat transfer equation by means of the Boussinesq approximation. Induced magnetic field is also taken into consideration. The governing equations in terms of stream function, temperature, induced magnetic field components, and vorticity are solved employing DRBEM in space together with the implicit backward Euler formula for the time derivatives. The use of DRBEM with linear boundary elements which is a boundary discretization method enables one to obtain small sized linear systems. This makes the whole procedure computationally efficient and cheap. The results are depicted with respect to varying physical parameters such as Prandt1 (0.005 <= Pr <= 1), Reynolds (100 <= Re <= 2500), magnetic Reynolds (1 <= Rein <= 100), Hartmann (10 <= Ha <= 100) and Rayleigh (10 <= Ra <= 10(6)) numbers for discussing the effect of each parameter on the flow and temperature behaviors of the fluid. It is found that an increase in Ha slows down the fluid motion and heat transfer becomes conductive. Centered square blockage causes secondary flows on its left and light even for small Re. Strong temperature gradients occur around the blockage and near the moving lid for increasing values of Ra.

This study presents the dual reciprocity boundary element (DRBEM) solution of Brinkman-Forchheimer-extended Darcy model in a porous medium containing an incompressible, viscous fluid. The governing dimensionless equations are solved in terms of stream function, vorticity and temperature. The problem geometry is a unit square cavity with either partially heated top and bottom walls or hot steps at the middle of these walls. DRBEM provides one to obtain the expected behavior of the flow in considerably small ...
DRBEM solutions of Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations in cavities under point source magnetic field
Senel, P.; Tezer, Münevver (2016-03-01)
This paper describes an iterative dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) for the solutions of Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations in cavities under the effect of an external point source magnetic field placed very close to the bottom. The fluid is viscous, incompressible and electrically non-conducting but magnetizable, and the flow is steady, laminar and fully developed. Both the Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations are solved in terms of velocity and pressure of the fluid by using DRBEM. Pressure b...

The dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) formulation is presented for solving incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow equations. The combination of Navier-Stokes equations of fluid dynamics and Maxwell's equations of electromagnetics through Ohm's law is considered in terms of stream function, vorticity and magnetic potential in 2D. The velocity field and the induced magnetic field can be determined through the relations with stream function and magnetic potential, respectively. The numeri...
DRBEM solution to MHD flow in ducts with thin slipping side walls and separated by conducting thick Hartmann walls
Senel, P.; Tezer-Sezgin, M. (Elsevier BV, 2019-11-01)
In this study, the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) solution to magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow is given in a single and two ducts stacked in the direction of external magnetic field. The duct walls perpendicular to the applied magnetic field (Hartmann walls) are conducting, thick and no-slip whereas the horizontal walls (side walls) are insulated, thin and allow the velocity slip. The DRBEM transforms the convection diffusion type MHD equations in the duct and Laplace equation in the thick w...

Oğlakkaya, Fatma Sidre; Bozkaya, Canan (null; 2016-07-11)
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...
