Chebyshev spectral collocation method for MHD duct flow under slip condition

The magnetohydrodynamic problem of a fully developed flow of an incompressible and electrically conducting fluid is solved numerically by a Chebyshev spectral collocation method in a square duct with walls of variable electric conductivities under a slip condition for velocity. The flow is driven by a constant pressure gradient under the effect of an externally applied oblique magnetic field. The efficiency of the method that is implemented in the physical space on preassigned collocation points is exploited to discretise the governing equations. The corroboration and validation of the proposed technique are carried out by means of a case study with published results substantiating that its implementation results in satisfactorily good agreements. Novel results are presented graphically, and the combined effects of the most characteristic magnetohydrodynamic flow parameters such as the slip length, conductivity parameter, and Hartmann number on the velocity and induced magnetic field are investigated.


Chebyshev Spectral Collocation Method for Natural Convection Flow of a Micropolar Nanofluid in the Presence of a Magnetic Field
Türk, Önder (2016-01-01)
The two-dimensional, laminar, unsteady natural convection flow of a micropolar nanofluid (Al2O3-water) in a square enclosure under the influence of a magnetic field, is solved numerically using the Chebyshev spectral collocation method (CSCM). The nanofluid is considered as Newtonian and incompressible, and the nanoparticles and water are assumed to be in thermal equilibrium. The governing equations in nondimensional form are given in terms of stream function, vorticity, micrototaion and temperature. The co...
Effect of boundary conditions on magnetohydrodynamics duct flow
Bozkaya, Canan (2017-12-01)
The magnetohydrodynamic flow of an incompressible, viscous and electrically conducting fluid is investigated numerically in a channel of either rectangular or semi-infinite cross-section with several types of boundary conditions involving walls of variable conductivity in the presence of hydrodynamic slip. The flow is fully developed and driven by a constant pressure gradient in the axial direction under a uniform external inclined magnetic field. The governing differential equations coupled in velocity and...
The application of BEM to MHD flow and heat transfer in a rectangular duct with temperature dependent viscosity
Ebren Kaya, Elif; Tezer, Münevver ( EC LTD.; 2018-07-11)
The steady, laminar, fully developed MHD flow of an incompressible, electrically conducting fluid with temperature dependent viscosity is studied in a rectangular duct together with its heat transfer. Although the induced magnetic field is neglected due to the small Reynolds number, the Hall effect, viscous and Joule dissipations are taken into consideration. The momentum equation for the pipe-axis velocity and the energy equation are solved iteratively. Firstly, the momentum equation is solved by using the...
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...
Chebyshev Spectral Collocation Method for Unsteady Mhd Flow and Heat Transfer of a Dusty Fluid Between Parallel Plates
Turk, Onder; Tezer, Münevver (2013-07-03)
The unsteady magnetohydrodynamic flow of a dusty fluid and heat transfer between parallel plates in which the electrically conducting fluid has temperature-dependent viscosity is studied. Both the fluid and the dust particles are governed by the coupled set of momentum and energy equations. The Chebyshev spectral method in space and implicit backward difference in time procedure is presented, introducing physically Navier-slip conditions for both the fluid and dust particle velocities. The Hartmann number, ...
