DRBEM solution to MHD flow in ducts with thin slipping side walls and separated by conducting thick Hartmann walls

Senel, P.
Tezer-Sezgin, M.
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 walls to boundary integral equations which are discretized by using constant elements. The resultant matrix-vector equations are solved as a whole with the coupled boundary conditions on the common boundaries between the fluid and the thick walls. The effects of the slip length, thickness of conducting walls and the applied magnetic field strength are shown in the flow and the induced magnetic field. It is found that, in the absence of the slip, as Hartmann number (Ha) increases, the flow is concentrated in front of the side walls in terms of two side layers, and this separation is happened for much smaller value of Ha when the thickness of the conducting walls is increased. The continuation of induced magnetic fields to the thick walls is well observed in both co-flow and counter flow cases. When the side walls admit slip, opposite to the no-slip case, an increase in the conductivity of the fluid enlarges the core region where the fluid is stagnant. The proposed numerical scheme DRBEM is capable of capturing the well known MHD flow characteristics in ducts with thick walls as well as perturbations in the behaviors of the flow and the induced magnetic field due to the thin slip walls.


DRBEM solution of the Cauchy MHD duct flow with a slipping perturbed boundary
Aydin, Cemre; Tezer, Münevver (Elsevier BV, 2018-08-01)
In this study, the MHD flow direct and Cauchy problems are solved in a rectangular duct with a perturbed, curved, and slip upper boundary. The aim is to recompute the slipping velocity and the slip length by using the asymptotic analysis with respect to the perturbation parameter e and solving MHD flow equations for the first order and the corrector solutions in the rectangular duct. Hence, without discretizing the curved boundary, we are able to obtain the solution of MHD flow in the duct with curved pertu...
DRBEM solution of natural convection flow of nanofluids with a heat source
Gumgum, S.; Tezer, Münevver (Elsevier BV, 2010-08-01)
This paper presents the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) solution of the unsteady natural convective flow of nanofluids in enclosures with a heat source. The implicit Euler scheme is used for time integration. All the convective terms are evaluated in terms of DRBEM coordinate matrix. The vorticity boundary conditions are obtained from the Taylor series expansion of stream function equation. The results report that the average Nusselt number increases with the increase in both volume fractio...

The nonlinear wave equation is solved numerically in an exterior region For the discretization of the space derivatives dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) is applied using the fundamental solution of Laplace equation. The time derivative and the nonlinearity are treated as the nonhomogenity. The boundary integrals coming from the far boundary are eliminated using rational and exponential interpolation functions which have decay properties far away from the region of Interest. The resulting sys...
DRBEM Solution of MHD flow in a rectangular duct with time-varied external magnetic field
Ebren Kaya, Elif; Tezer, Münevver (Elsevier BV, 2020-08-01)
This paper investigates the flow behavior of a viscous, incompressible and electrically conducting fluid in a long channel subjected to a time-varied oblique magnetic field B-0(t) = B(0)f(t). The time-dependent MHD equations are solved by using the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM). The transient level velocity and induced magnetic field profiles are presented for moderate Hartmann number values, several direction of applied magnetic field and for several functions f(t) as polynomial, exponen...

Fendoglu, Hande; Bozkaya, Canan; Tezer, Münevver (Elsevier BV, 2019-01-15)
The unsteady magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of a viscous, incompressible and electrically conducting fluid in a rectangular duct with a perturbed boundary, is investigated. A small boundary perturbation e is applied on the upper wall of the duct which is encountered in the visualization of the blood flow in constricted arteries. The MHD equations which are coupled in the velocity and the induced magnetic field are solved with no-slip velocity conditions and by taking the side walls as insulated and the Hart...
