    Numerical Solutions of Unsteady MHD Flow Heat Transfer Over a Stretching Surface with Suction or Injection

    G. Venkata Ramana Reddy1,*, Y. Hari Krishna1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.14, No.3, pp. 213-222, 2018, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2018.00411

    Abstract The objective of the present problem is to investigate a two-dimensional unsteady flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid over a stretching surface taking into account a transverse magnetic field of constant strength. Applying the similarity transformation, the governing boundary layer equations of the problem converted into nonlinear ordinary differential equations and then solved numerically using fourth order Runge-Kutta method with shooting technique. The effects of various parameters on the velocity and temperature fields as well as the skin-friction coefficient and Nusselt number are presented graphically and discussed qualitatively. More >

    H. Azoui1, D. Bahloul1,*, N. Soltani2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.14, No.2, pp. 87-105, 2018, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2018.01149

    Abstract In this work we have performed a three-dimensional numerical investigation in order to find the optimal conditions for growing efficiently high quality sapphire crystals with good thermal properties. We have studied thermal instabilities near the melt-crystal interface and the convective heat transfer under the Czochralski (Cz) process. We performed 3-D CFD simulation in cylindrical coordinates and used the Fast Fourier Transform method to analyze the temperature fluctuations. We present a detailed investigation on the effects of the crystal rotation speed and the temperature distribution on thermal instabilities of sapphire melt under forced convection. Where the More >

    Turbulent Flow Produced by Twin Slot Jets Impinging a Wall

    Fatiha Bentarzi1, Amina Mataoui1, *

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.14, No.2, pp. 107-120, 2018, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2018.06046

    Abstract The dynamics of two fully developed turbulent jets, perpendicular to a heated flat plate and related heat transfer mechanism are analysed numerically. This problem is relevant to several thermal engineering applications. The governing equations are solved by a finite volume method with a second order RSM model combined with wall functions used for turbulent modelling. The possibility to improve heat transfer is assessed taking into account the characteristic parameters for the jet-wall interaction. In particular, a parametric study is conducted by varying the jet Reynolds number (Re) and the nozzle to plate distance (D). The… More >

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.13, No.3, pp. 189-212, 2017, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2017.013.189

    Abstract A numerical work has been performed to analyze the laminar mixed convection of nanofluids confined in a lid driven square enclosure with a central square and isotherm heat source. All the walls are cooled at constant temperature, and the top wall slides rightward at constant velocity. The simulations considered four types of nanofluids (Cu, Ag, Al2O3 and TiO2)-Water. The governing equations were solved using finite volume approach by the SIMPLER algorithm. Comparisons with previously published work are performed and found to be in good agreement. The influence of pertinent parameters such as Richardson number, size of… More >

    Mohamed Ammar Abbassi1, Bouchmel Mliki1, Ridha Djebali1,2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.13, No.2, pp. 59-83, 2017, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2017.013.059

    Abstract This article reports a numerical study of nanoparticle Brownian motion and magnetic field effects by natural convection in a nanofluid-filled open cavity with non uniform boundary condition. Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) is used to simulate nanofluid flow and heat transfer. The effective thermal conductivity and viscosity of nanofluid are calculated by KKL (Koo-Kleinstreuer-Li) correlation. In this model effect of Brownian motion on the effective thermal conductivity and effective viscosity is considered and examined. Simulations have been carried out for the pertinent parameters in the following ranges: Rayleigh number (Ra=103−106), Hartmann number (Ha=0-60), nanoparticle volume concentration (Φ=0–0.04) and More >

    Bouchmel Mliki, Mohamed Ammar Abbassi, Ahmed Omri

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.11, No.1, pp. 87-114, 2015, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2015.011.087

    Abstract MHD double-diffusive natural convective flow in a C-shaped enclosure filled with a Cu/Water nanofluid is investigated numerically using the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM). Much care is devoted to the validation of the numerical code. The effects exerted on the flow, concentration and temperature fields by different parameters such as the Rayleigh number (103−106), the nanoparticle volume concentration (0−0,1), the Lewis number (1-5), the Hartmann number (0−30) and different types of nanoparticles (Cu, Ag, Al2O3 and TiO3 are assessed in detail. Results for stream function, Nusselt and Sherwood numbers are presented and discussed for various parametric conditions. Results More >

    Heat Transfer Related to a Self-Sustained Oscillating Plane Jet Flowing Inside a Rectangular Cavity

    F. Iachachene1, A. Matoui2, Y. Halouane1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.10, No.4, pp. 503-520, 2014, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2014.010.503

    Abstract Computations related to a heat transfer and fluid flow of a plane isothermal fully developed turbulent plane jet flowing into a rectangular hot cavity are reported in this paper. Both velocity and temperature distributions are computed by solving the two-dimensional Unsteady Reynolds Averaged Navier--Stokes (URANS) equations. This approach relies on one point statistical modeling based on the energy - specific dissipation (k-ω) turbulence model. The numerical simulations are carried out in the framework of a finite volume method. This problem is relevant to a wide range of practical applications including forced convection and the ventilation of More >

    Mixed Convection and Heat Transfer in a “T” Form Cavity: The Effect of Inclination

    M’barka Mourabit1, Hicham Rouijaa1, El Alami Semma1, Mustapha El Alami2, Mostafa Najam2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.10, No.3, pp. 395-415, 2014, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2014.010.395

    Abstract We study the effect of inclination angle on mixed convection in a "T" form cavity containing two openings and two heated blocks mounted on its lower wall. The blocks are maintained at a constant temperature TH. The lower wall is adiabatic and submitted to a vertical air jet while the upper wall is kept cold at a constant temperature TC < TH. The vertical walls are rigid and adiabatic. The governing equations are solved by a finite volume method. Special attention is devoted to the solution symmetry, the flow structure and the heat exchange through the cavity. More >

    D. Benmouhoub1, A. Mataoui1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.10, No.2, pp. 241-260, 2014, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2014.010.241

    Abstract The present work is devoted to the numerical study of the interaction of an inclined plane turbulent jet with a moving horizontal isothermal hot wall. The inclination of the jet allows the control of the stagnation point location. Numerical predictions based on statistical modeling are obtained using a second order Reynolds stress turbulence model coupled to an enhanced wall treatment. For a given impinging distance H (H =8e), the considered problem parameters are: (a) jet exit Reynolds number (Re, based on the thickness "e" of the nozzle) in the range from 10000 to 25000, (b)… More >

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.10, No.2, pp. 179-196, 2014, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2014.010.179

    Abstract The present study is carried out to examine the effects of temperature dependent variable viscosity on the three dimensional steady axi-symmetric Ferrohydrodynamic (FHD) boundary layer flow of an incompressible electrically nonconducting magnetic fluid in the presence of a rotating disk. The disk is subjected to an externally applied magnetic field and is maintained at a uniform temperature. The nonlinear coupled partial differential equations governing the boundary layer flow are non dimensionalized using similarity transformations and are reduced to a system of coupled ordinary differential equations. To study the effects of temperature dependent viscosity on velocity More >
