The steady-state convective heat transfer for laminar, two-dimensional, incompressible rarefied gas flow in the thermal entrance region of a tube under constant wall temperature, constant wall heat flux, and linear variation of wall temperature boundary conditions are investigated by the finite-volume finite difference scheme with slip flow and temperature jump conditions. Viscous heating is also included, and the solutions are compared with theoretical results where viscous heating has been neglected. For these three boundary conditions for a given Brinkman number, viscous effects are presented in the thermal entrance region along the channel. The effects of Knudsen and Brinkman numbers on Nusselt number are presented in graphical and tabular forms in the thermal entrance region and under fully developed conditions.

Sert, İsmail Ozan; Sezer Uzol, Nilay; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Kakaç, Sadık (2012-11-15)
In this study, forced convection heat transfer Characteristics of nanofluids are investigated by numerical analysis of incompressible transient laminar flow in a circular duct under step change in wall temperature and wall heat flux. The thermal responses of the system are obtained by solving energy equation under both transient and steady-state conditions for hydrodynamically fully developed flow. In the analyses, temperature dependent thermo-physical properties are also considered. In the numerical analys...
A pseudospectral analysis of laminar natural convection and heat transfer between two inclined parallel plates
Kasapoğlu, Serkan; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
Three dimensional laminar natural convection flow of and heat transfer in incompressible air between two inclined parallel plates are analyzed with the Boussinesq approximation by using spectral methods. The plates are assumed to be infinitely long in streamwise and spanwise directions. For these directions, periodic boundary conditions are used and for the normal direction constant wall temperature and no slip boundary conditions are used. Unsteady Navier-Stokes and energy equations are solved using a pseu...
EXPERIMENTAL AND NUMERICAL STUDY ON HEAT TRANSFER PERFORMANCE OF SQUARE, CYLINDRICAL AND PLATE HEAT SINKS IN EXTERNAL TRANSITION FLOW REGIME
İnci, Aykut Barış; Bayer, Özgür (2019-01-01)
Geometrical optimization of heat sinks with square, cylindrical and plate fins for heat transfer increase is numerically analyzed in transition regime external flow. The relations between the thermal characteristics of fins and boundary conditions such as free-stream velocity are investigated. Experimental studies are performed by using manufacturable fins to validate the numerical model. Heat transfer correlations are derived in order to determine average heat transfer coefficients over a certain range of ...

In this study, a numerical analysis of heat transfer enhancement of Alumina/water nanofluid in a steady-state, single-phase, laminar flow in a circular duct is presented for the case of constant wall heat flux and constant wall temperature boundary conditions. The analysis is performed with a newly suggested model (Corcione) for effective thermal conductivity and viscosity, which show the effects of temperature and nanoparticle diameter. The results for Nusselt number and heat transfer enhancement are prese...

Çetin, Barbaros; Bayer, Özgür (2010-09-28)
In this paper, the fully-developed temperature profile and corresponding Nusselt value is determined analytically for a gaseous flow in a microtube with a thermal boundary condition of constant wall heat flux. The flow assumed to be laminar, and hydrodynamically and thermally fully developed. The fluid is assumed to be constant property and incompressible. The effect of rarefaction, viscous dissipation and axial conduction, which are important at the microscale, are i...
