MHD natural convection flow in a porous cavity

2018-09-13
A numerical investigation of natural convection flow in a cavity filled with a fluid-saturated porous medium in the presence of uniform magnetic field is performed. The steady, viscous, incompressible flow inside the porous medium is assumed to obey the Darcy law. The fluid physical properties are constant except the density in the body force term which is treated according to Boussinesq approximation. The fluid and porous medium are in thermal equilibrium. The governing equations subject to appropriate boundary conditions are solved by using the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) which transforms the differential equations into equivalent boundary integral equations by treating the non-homogeneity through a radial basis function approximation. A parametric study illustrating the influence of the physical parameters on the flow and heat transfer characteristics is carried out and the results are visualized in terms of the streamlines, isotherms and the average Nusselt number

RBF Solution of Incompressible MHD Convection Flow in a Pipe
Gürbüz, Merve; Tezer, Münevver (2016-10-12)
The steady convection flow of a viscous, incompressible and electrically conducting fluid is considered in a lid-driven cavity under the effect of a uniform horizontally applied magnetic field. The governing equations are the Navier-Stokes equations of fluid dynamics including buoyancy and Lorentz forces and the energy equation including Joule heating and viscous dissipation. These coupled equations are solved iteratively in terms of velocity components, stream function, vorticity, pressure and temperature ...

Bozkaya, Canan (2016-01-01)
The hydromagnetic free convection of a Cu-water nanofluid in a square cavity involving an adiabatic circular cylinder is numerically investigated in the presence of an inclined uniform magnetic field. The left and right walls of the cavity are kept at constant hot and cold temperatures, respectively, while the horizontal walls are assumed to be adiabatic. The coupled nonlinear equations of mass, momentum and energy governing the present problem are discretized using the dual reciprocity boundary element met...
A DRBEM solution for MHD pipe flow in a conducting medium
Han Aydın, S.; Tezer, Münevver (Elsevier BV, 2014-3)
Numerical solutions are given for magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) pipe flow under the influence of a transverse magnetic field when the outside medium is also electrically conducting. Convection-diffusion-type MHD equations for inside the pipe are coupled with the Laplace equation defined in the exterior region, and the continuity requirements for the induced magnetic fields are also coupled on the pipe wall. The most general problem of a conducting pipe wall with thickness, which also has magnetic induction gene...

The steady and laminar mixed convection flow of a viscous, incompressible, and electrically conducting fluid under the effect of an inclined magnetic field is numerically investigated. Specifically, the two-dimensional flow in a lid-driven cavity with a linearly heated wall is considered. The dual reciprocity boundary element method is used for solving the coupled nonlinear differential equations in terms of stream function, vorticity, and temperature. The study focuses on the effects of the physical parame...
