Heat transfer enhancement in water-feldspar upflows through vertical annuli

Ozbelge, TA

Although there are many industrial applications of liquid-solid flows in technology, the available knowledge of heat transfer to or from such flows is limited. In this study the effects of parameters on the enhancement of heat transfer from water-feldspar slurries flowing turbulently upwards in vertical annuli were investigated and the experimental conditions beneficial to the enhancement of heat transfer were determined. It was found that the heat transfer enhancement in upflow of slurries through a vertical annulus was a function of Prandtl and flow Reynolds numbers, the ratio of equivalent diameter to particle diameter, the aspect ratio of the inner pipe diameter to the outer pipe diameter and the concentration of solid particles in the slurry.


Heat Transfer Simulation of Rarefied Laminar Flow past a Circular Cylinder
Çelenligil, Mehmet Cevdet (2016-07-15)
Direct simulation Monte Carlo calculations are performed to study the heat transfer in laminar, rarefied flows past a circular cylinder. Results are obtained for flows with Knudsen numbers of 0.02 and 0.2; Mach numbers of 0.102 and 0.4, and also several cylinder temperatures are considered. Calculations show that these flows are attached except for the one with a Knudsen number of 0.02 and a Mach number of 0.4 in which separation occurs in the wake of the cylinder. Results are little affected by the changes...

In order to utilize nanofluids in practical applications, accurate prediction of forced convection heat transfer of nanofluids is necessary. In the first part of the present study, we consider the application of some classical correlations of forced convection heat transfer developed for the flow of pure fluids to the case of nanofluids by the use of nanofluid thermophysical properties. The results are compared with experimental data available in the literature, and it is shown that this approach underestim...
Enhanced thermal conductivity of nanofluids: a state-of-the-art review
Özerinç, Sezer; Yazicioglu, Almila Guevenc (2010-02-01)
Adding small particles into a fluid in cooling and heating processes is one of the methods to increase the rate of heat transfer by convection between the fluid and the surface. In the past decade, a new class Of fluids called nanofluids, in which particles of size 1-100 nm with high thermal conductivity are Suspended in a conventional heat transfer base fluid, have been developed. It has been shown that nanofluids containing a small amount of metallic or nonmetallic particles, Such as Al2O3, CuO, Cu, SiO2,...
Unravelling convective heat transfer in the rotated arc mixer
Speetjens, M.F.M.; Başkan Perçin, Özge; Metcalfe, G.; Clercx, H.J.H. (2014-01-01)
Thermal homogenization is essentially a transient problem and convective heat transfer by (chaotic) advection is known to accelerate this process. Convective heat transfer traditionally is examined in terms of heat-transfer coefficients at domain walls and characterised by Nusselt relations. However, though of proven worth, such Nusselt relations offer limited insight into the underlying thermal transport phenomena. This study seeks to address this by considering convective heat transfer from an alternative...
Heat transfer effects on the stability of low speed plane Couette-Poiseuille flow
Oezgen, Serkan; Dursunkaya, Zafer; Ebrinc, Ali Asian (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-10-01)
The stability problem of low-speed plane Couette-Poiseuille flow of air under heat transfer effects is solved numerically using the linear stability theory. Stability equations obtained from two-dimensional equations of motion and their boundary conditions result in an eigenvalue problem that is solved using an efficient shoot-search technique. Variable fluid properties are accounted for both in the basic flow and the perturbation (stability) equations. A parametric study is performed in order to assess the...
