Natural convection flow of a nanofluid in an enclosure under an inclined uniform magnetic field
Tezer, Münevver; Bozkaya, Canan (2016-01-01)
In this study, the natural convection in a square enclosure filled with water-based aluminium oxide (Al2O3) under the influence of an externally applied inclined magnetic field is considered numerically. The flow is steady, two-dimensional and laminar; the nanoparticles and water are assumed to be in thermal equilibrium. The governing equations are solved in terms of stream function-vorticity-temperature using both the dual reciprocity boundary element method and the finite element method to see the influen...
Natural convection in porous annular domains: Mimetic scheme and family of steady states
Karasözen, Bülent; Tsybulin, Vyacheslav G. (2012-04-01)
Natural convection of the incompressible fluid in the porous media based on the Darcy hypothesis (Lapwood convection) gives an intriguing branching off of one-parameter family of steady patterns. This scenario may be suppressed in computations when governing equations are approximated by schemes which do not preserve the cosymmetry property. We consider the problem for the annular porous domain in polar coordinates and derive a mimetic finite-difference scheme. This scheme allows to compute the family of co...

Natural convection heat transfer from horizontal and slightly inclined plate-fin heat sinks
Tarı, İlker (Elsevier BV, 2013-11-03)
Natural convection from plate-fin heat sinks in both horizontal and slightly inclined from horizontal orientations is studied for the inclination angles of +/- 60 degrees, +/- 75 degrees, +80 degrees, +/- 85 degrees, +/- 90 degrees from the vertical. A set of correlations is obtained for both upward (-) and downward (+) facing horizontal cases. The correlations are tested for validity by using large sets of experimental data from literature. By varying the direction of gravitational acceleration for several...
Natural convection simulations and numerical determination of critical tilt angles for a parallel plate channel
Tarı, İlker (Elsevier BV, 2010-04-01)
Three dimensional laminar unsteady natural convection flow of incompressible air between two inclined parallel plates is analyzed by using spectral methods. The channel that is periodical in streamwise and spanwise directions is heated from below. The motivation behind the study is to perform simulations for a domain representing a bottom heated, open ended and inclined enclosure that appears mostly in solar energy applications The governing equations are solved using a pseudospectral solver in order to obt...
