In the thesis, four different MHD duct flow problems are solved by using the Dual Reciprocity Boundary Element Method (DRBEM) with the suitable boundary conditions according to the physics of the problem. The two-dimensional, steady or unsteady, fully-developed MHD flow of a viscous, incompressible and electrically conducting fluid is considered in a long pipe of rectangular cross-section (duct) under the effect of an externally applied magnetic field which is either uniform or time-dependent or axially changing. The inductionless MHD flow with temperature dependent viscosity and heat transfer is the first considered problem. In this problem, the induced magnetic field is neglected due to the small magnetic Reynolds number assumption. Secondly, the MHD duct flow under a time-varied external magnetic field is studied. Then, we turn our concern to MHD flow problems under an axial-dependent magnetic field varying in the streamwise direction (pipe-axis direction) in the third and the fourth problems. Specifically, the inductionless MHD flow with electric potential is considered under the effect of the axially-changing magnetic field as the third problem. Adding the induced magnetic field to the velocity and electric potential equations as a triple is the last MHD flow problem considered in the thesis. The parametrix BEM implementation is also presented for the solution of the variable coefficient convection-diffusion type equations. The influence of the magnetic fields on the MHD flows is investigated and simulated in terms of the velocity, temperature, induced magnetic field and electric potential contours for several values of physical parameters.

 Least squares differential quadrature time integration scheme in the dual reciprocity boundary element method solution of convection-diffusion problems Bozkaya, Canan (2005-03-18) The least squares differential quadrature method (DQM) is used for solving the ordinary differential equations in time, obtained from the application of the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) for the spatial partial derivatives in convection-diffusion type problems. The DRBEM enables us to use the fundamental solution of the Laplace equation which is easy to implement computationally. The time derivative and the convection terms are considered as the nonhomogeneity in the equation which are ap...
