Chebyshev Spectral Collocation Method for Natural Convection Flow of a Micropolar Nanofluid in the Presence of a Magnetic Field

The two-dimensional, laminar, unsteady natural convection flow of a micropolar nanofluid (Al2O3-water) in a square enclosure under the influence of a magnetic field, is solved numerically using the Chebyshev spectral collocation method (CSCM). The nanofluid is considered as Newtonian and incompressible, and the nanoparticles and water are assumed to be in thermal equilibrium. The governing equations in nondimensional form are given in terms of stream function, vorticity, micrototaion and temperature. The coupled and nonlinear equations are solved iteratively in the time direction, and an implicit backward difference scheme is employed for the time integration. The boundary conditions of vorticity are computed within this iterative process using a CSCM discretization of the stream function equation. The main advantages of CSCM, such as the high accuracy and the ease of implementation, aremade used of to obtain solutions for very high values of Ra and Ha, up to 10(7) and 1000, respectively.

Chebyshev spectral collocation method for MHD duct flow under slip condition
Bozkaya, Canan; Türk, Önder (2022-01-01)
The magnetohydrodynamic problem of a fully developed flow of an incompressible and electrically conducting fluid is solved numerically by a Chebyshev spectral collocation method in a square duct with walls of variable electric conductivities under a slip condition for velocity. The flow is driven by a constant pressure gradient under the effect of an externally applied oblique magnetic field. The efficiency of the method that is implemented in the physical space on preassigned collocation points is exploite...
DRBEM solution of free convection in porous enclosures under the effect of a magnetic field
Pekmen, B.; Tezer, Münevver (2013-01-01)
The dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) is applied for solving steady free convection in special shape enclosures filled with a fluid saturated porous medium under the effect of a magnetic field. The left and right walls are maintained at constant or different temperatures while the top and bottom walls are kept adiabatic. The effect of the external magnetic field on the flow and temperature behavior is visualized with different Rayleigh numbers Ra, Hartmann numbers Ha and inclination angle phi...
Numerical investigation of unsteady natural convection from a heated cylinder in a square enclosure
Bozkaya, Canan (null; 2015-07-06)
A numerical study of two dimensional, unsteady, incompressible natural convection flow and heat transfer is performed in a square enclosure involving a heated circular cylinder. The natural convection is driven by a temperature difference between the cold outer square and hot inner circular cylinders. The temperature of the inner cylinder varies sinusoidally with time about a fixed mean temperature while the outer enclosure is kept at a lower constant temperature. The problem under consideration, which is g...
A Numerical approach for the solutions of fluid dynamics problems in the presence of magnetic field
Oğlakkaya, Fatma Sidre; Bozkaya, Canan; Department of Mathematics (2018)
This thesis is conducted to investigate numerically the two-dimensional steady or unsteady, laminar flow of viscous, incompressible and electrically conducting fluids in complex geometries subject to either uniform inclined magnetic field or nodal magnetic sources. Specifically, the hydromagnetic natural/mixed convection of either conventional fluid or water-based nanofluid flow and the heat transfer are considered in irregular enclosures with wavy walls. The equations governing the steady magnetohydrodynam...
Chebyshev Spectral Collocation Method for Unsteady Mhd Flow and Heat Transfer of a Dusty Fluid Between Parallel Plates
Turk, Onder; Tezer, Münevver (2013-07-03)
The unsteady magnetohydrodynamic flow of a dusty fluid and heat transfer between parallel plates in which the electrically conducting fluid has temperature-dependent viscosity is studied. Both the fluid and the dust particles are governed by the coupled set of momentum and energy equations. The Chebyshev spectral method in space and implicit backward difference in time procedure is presented, introducing physically Navier-slip conditions for both the fluid and dust particle velocities. The Hartmann number, ...
