    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 129-154, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2012.008.129
    Abstract The problem related to coupled double diffusive convection in a square enclosure filled with a gray gas in the presence of volumetric radiation is examined numerically. The horizontal walls are assumed to be insulated and impermeable. Different temperatures and species concentrations are imposed at vertical walls. In particular, we propose a 2-D numerical approach based on a hybrid scheme combining a multiple-relaxation-time lattice Boltzmann model (MRT-LBM) and a standard finite difference method (FDM). The radiative term in the energy equation is treated using the discrete ordinates method (DOM) with a S8 quadrature. The influence of various parameters (such as the… More >

    Numerical and Analytical Analysis of the Thermosolutal Convection in an Heterogeneous Porous Cavity

    K. Choukairy1, R. Bennacer2
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 155-172, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2012.008.155
    Abstract This study carries the natural thermosolutal convection induced in heterogeneous porous media. The configuration considered is cartesian. The horizontal and vertical walls are submitted to different mass and heat transfer. The equations which govern this type of flow are solved numerically by using the finite volume method. The flow is considered two-dimensional and laminar. The model of Darcy and the approximation of the Boussinesq are taken into account. The parameters which control the problem are the thermal Darcy-Rayleigh number, Rt, the buoyancy ratio, N, the Lewis number, Le, the aspect ratio of the enclosure, A and the local permeability ratio,… More >

    Thermal Effects on the Spreading and Solidification of a Micrometric Molten Particle Impacting onto a Rigid Substrate

    S. Oukach1,2,3, H. Hamdi2, M. El Ganaoui4, B. Pateyron1
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 173-196, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2012.008.173
    Abstract The splat formation is one of the basic processes in thermal spray coatings. The performance of these coatings is strongly related to the process of spreading and solidification of molten droplets. The aim of the present paper is to simulate the fluid flow, heat transfer and phase-change that occur when a micrometric molten droplet impacts onto a rigid substrate and to examine the effect of the substrate conditions, such as initial temperature and material on the solidification time and spreading process. The effect of thermal contact resistance is also investigated. The simulation model used is based on the Navier-Stokes equations… More >

    Convection Correlations at High Re Numbers for Cavities of Cylindrical Roller Bearings

    S. Guenoun1, A. Baïri1, N. Laraqi1,2, J.M. García de María3, J.G. Bauzin1, A. Hocine1
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 197-214, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2012.008.197
    Abstract Roller bearings are used in mechanical setups to reduce rubbing. In some applications, the thermal dissipation involved mostly due to friction between rollers and rings is important. Correct operation of the roller is possible only if local thermal phenomena are controlled. In this work, the resulting dynamical and thermal fields within the enclosures limited by rollers and rings in cylindrical bearings are obtained through numerical modelling. Convective heat transfer is quantified by Nu-Re-Pr correlations for various dynamical and thermal configurations of the bearing. Two specific shape factors of the cavity and common fluids of engineering interest are considered, including air,… More >

    A Bond Graph Model Validation of an Experimental Single Zone Building

    A. Merabtine1, S. Mokraoui1, R. Benelmir1, N. Laraqi2
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 215-240, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2012.008.215
    Abstract Modeling of the thermal behavior of buildings needs effective strategies of analysis and tools. This is particularly true when conduction of heat through walls and/or slabs has to be properly taken into account. This article is concerned with a new modeling strategy for solving the transient heat conduction equation in a finite medium (with extensive background application to the different elements of a building structure). The developed approach is based on the Bond Graph technique, a graphical modeling language which is particularly suitable to the treatment of problems involving energy transfer. With this model, two typical transient heat conduction situations… More >

    Simulation of Pollutants Dispersion in the Bay of Tangier (Morocco)

    A. Belcaid1,2, G. Le Palec2, A. Draoui1, Ph. Bournot1
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 241-256, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2012.008.241
    Abstract The study is focused on numerical simulation of the process of coastal pollution by wastewater in the Bay of Tangier in Morocco. The process is governed by flows generated by the tide and the large variations of the discharges from the different Wadis (rivers) flowing into the bay. The simulation requires a number of tests and trials, something that is experimentally expensive and sometimes impossible. Hence the idea was developed of a numerical study aimed at tracking the dispersion of pollutants into the bay and determining the level of degradation of its waters. The simulation was done using the computer… More >
