Forced convection heat transfer characteristics of Al2O3/water nanofluid are investigated numerically by using mixture model two-phase flow approach with Fluent software. The initially hydro-dynamically fully developed laminar nanofluid flow simulations are performed with different nanoparticle volume fractions. The effects of thermal conductivity and viscosity models on heat transfer enhancements are carried out for constant heat flux boundary condition. As a result, the heat transfer coefficient results obtained by the different models are compared with the experimental data available in the literature for the same geometry and boundary conditions. It is observed that the results are in good agreement with the available experimental data.

Numerical simulation of turbine internal cooling and conjugate heat transfer problems with Ra-based turbulance models
Görgülü, İlhan; Akmandor, İbrahim Sinan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2012)
The present study considers the numerical simulation of the different flow characteristics involved in the conjugate heat transfer analysis of an internally cooled gas turbine blade. Conjugate simulations require full coupling of convective heat transfer in fluid regions to the heat diffusion in solid regions. Therefore, accurate prediction of heat transfer quantities on both external and internal surfaces has the uppermost importance and highly connected with the performance of the employed turbulence mode...

Solmus, Ismail; Rees, D. Andrew S.; Yamali, Cemil; Baker, Derek Keıth; KAFTANOĞLU, BİLGİN (2012-05-01)
In this study, the influence of several design parameters on the transient distributions of temperature, pressure and amount adsorbed in the radial direction of a cylindrical adsorbent bed of an adsorption cooling unit using silica gel/water have been investigated numerically. For this purpose, a transient one-dimensional local thermal non-equilibrium model that accounts for both internal and external mass transfer resistances has been developed using the local volume averaging method. For the conditions in...
Computational Modeling of the Effects of Viscous Dissipation on Polymer Melt Flow Behavior During Injection Molding Process in Plane Channels
Tutar, M.; Karakuş, Ali (2013-02-01)
The present finite volume method based fluid flow solutions investigate the boundary-layer flow and heat transfer characteristics of polymer melt flow in a rectangular plane channel in the presence of the effect of viscous dissipation and heat transfer by considering the viscosity and density variations in the flow. For different inflow velocity boundary conditions and the injection polymer melt temperatures, the viscous dissipation effects on the velocity and temperature distributions are studied extensive...
Experimental investigation of single phase liquid flow and heat transfer in multiport minichannels
Altınöz, Mesru; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Baker, Derek Keıth; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2013)
This thesis aims to experimentally investigate pressure drop and heat transfer characteristics of single phase water flow in rectangular minichannels. The small channels are an area of interest in heat transfer field since 1970’s owing to their enhanced heat transfer characteristics. However, the heat transfer and pressure drop characteristics of these channels are not fully established as there is a wide number of studies in literature showing inconsistent results with each other. In order to investigate t...
Numerical simulation and analytical optimization of microchannel heat sinks
Türkakar, Göker; Okutucu Özyurt, Hanife Tuba; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
This study has two main objectives: The performance evaluation of existing microchannel heat sinks using a CFD model, and the dimensional optimization of various heat sinks by minimizing the total thermal resistance. For the analyses, the geometric modeling is performed using the software GAMBIT while the thermal analysis is performed with FLUENT. The developed model compares very well with those available in the literature. Eight different metal-polymer microchannel heat sinks are analyzed using the model ...
