This paper simulates the 2D transient magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow in a rectangular duct in terms of the velocity of the fluid and the induced magnetic field by using the radial basis function (RBF) approximation. The inhomogeneities in the Poisson’s type MHD equations are approximated using the polynomial functions (1+r) and the particular solution is found satisfying both the equations and the boundary conditions (no-slip and insulated walls). The Euler scheme is used for advancing the solution to steady-state with a time increment and a relaxation parameter which are determined for achieving stable solution. It is shown that, as Hartmann number increases, the fluid becomes stagnant at the center of the duct, the flow is flattened and boundary layers are developed on the Hartmann and side walls. These are the well-known characteristics of the MHD duct flow. The stability analysis is also carried in terms of the spectral radius of the coefficient matrix of the discretized coupled system. Stable solutions are obtained with RBF by using quite large time increment and suitable relaxation parameters on the expense of explicit Euler time-integration scheme used.

Stability of Unsteady MHD Flow in a Rectangular Duct
Tezer, Münevver (2018-06-29)
In this study, the time dependent and coupled magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow equations are solved in the cross-section of a rectangular pipe (duct) by using the radial basis function approximation (RBF). The MHD studies electrically conducting fluids in the presence of a magnetic field. It has wide range of industrial applications such as MHD generators, MHD pumps, plasma physics and nuclear fusion [1]. The velocity and the induced magnetic field are obtained by approximating the inhomogeneities using thin ...
Numerical solution of magnetohydrodynamic flow problems using the boundary element method
Tezer, Münevver (2005-03-18)
A boundary element solution is given for a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow problem in a rectangular duct having insulating walls, in terms of velocity and induced magnetic field. The coupled velocity and magnetic field equations are first transformed into decoupled nonhomogeneous convection-diffusion type equations and then finding particular solutions, the homogeneous equations are solved using the boundary element method (BEM). The fundamental solutions of the decoupled homogeneous equations themselves are...
NUMERICAL STABILITY OF RBF APPROXIMATION FOR UNSTEADY MHD FLOW EQUATIONS
Gurbuz, Merve; Tezer, Münevver (2019-01-01)
In this study, the radial basis function (RBF) approximation is applied for solving the unsteady fluid flow and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) convection flow problems with the use of explicit Euler time discretization and relaxation parameters to accelerate the convergence. The stability analysis is also carried out in terms of the spectral radius of related RBF discretized coefficient matrices. The optimal choices of the time increment, relaxation parameters and physical problem parameters are found for achiev...
Numerical Solution of MHD Incompressible Convection Flow in Channels
Gurbuz, Merve; Tezer, Münevver (2019-1-01)
The purpose of this paper is to study numerically the influence of the magnetic field, buoyancy force and viscous dissipation on the convective flow and temperature of the fluid in a square cavity, lid-driven cavity, and lid-driven cavity with an obstacle at the center. The continuity, momentum and energy equations are coupled including buoyancy and magnetic forces, and energy equation contains Joule heating and viscous dissipation. The equations are solved in terms of stream function, vorticity and tempera...
Numerical Simulation of Rarefied Laminar Flow past a Circular Cylinder
Çelenligil, Mehmet Cevdet (2014-07-18)
Numerical simulations have been obtained for two-dimensional laminar flows past a circular cylinder in the transitional regime. Computations are performed using the direct simulation Monte Carlo method for Knudsen numbers of 0.02 and 0.2 and Mach numbers of 0.102 and 0.4. For these conditions, Reynolds number ranges from 0.626 to 24.63 and the flows are steady. Results show that separation occurs in the wake region for the flow with Mach number of 0.4 and Knudsen number of 0.02, but for the other eases flow...
