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 numerical results are visualized for several values of Reynolds (Re), Hartmann (Ha) and magnetic Reynolds number (Rem) in a lid-driven cavity, and in a channel with a square cylinder. The well-known characteristics of the fluid flow and MHD flow are exhibited. These are the shift of the core region of the flow and the development of the main vortex in the vorticity through the center of the cavity as Re increases. An increase in Ha causes Hartmann layers for the flow at the bottom and top walls. Higher values of Rem result in circulation of the magnetic potential at the center of the cavity. An increase in Re causes symmetric vortices behind the cylinder to elongate through the channel, and an increase in Hartmann number suppresses this elongation.

 DRBEM applications in fluid dynamics problems and DQM solutions of hyperbolic equations Pekmen, Bengisen; Tezer Sezgin, Münevver; Department of Scientific Computing (2014) In this thesis, problems of fluid dynamics defined by the two-dimensional convection-diffusion type partial differential equations (PDEs) are solved using the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM). The terms other than the Laplacian are treated as inhomogeneous terms in the DRBEM application. Once the both sides are multiplied by the fundamental solution of Laplace equation, and then integrated over the domain, all the domain integrals are transformed to boundary integrals using the Green's ident...

MHD equations are coupled with the heat transfer equation by means of the Boussinesq approximation. Induced magnetic field is also taken into consideration.

 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...
 DRBEM Solution of MHD Flow and Electric Potential in a Rectangular Pipe with a Moving Lid Tezer, Münevver; Bozkaya, Canan (2015-09-18) We present the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) solution of the system of equations which model magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow in a pipe with moving lid at low magnetic Reynolds number. The external magnetic field acts in the pipe-axis direction generating the electric potential. The solution is obtained in terms of stream function, vorticity and electric potential in the cross-section of the pipe, and the pipe axis velocity is also computed under a constant pressure gradient. It is found th...
