    A. Arid1, T. Kousksou1, S.Jegadheeswaran2, A. Jamil3, Y. Zeraouli1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.3, pp. 257-276, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2012.008.257

    Abstract A two-dimensional numerical model has been developed to investigate the phase-change of ice near 4 °C in a rectangular cavity. The enthalpy-porosity model is reformulated in terms of conservation equations of mass, momentum and heat to account for the evolution the solid/liquid interface. Constant and time-dependent (with sinusoidal law) temperature boundary conditions are considered. Results confirm the possibility to control the typical dynamics of ice melting in a square cavity near the density inversion point by means of a wall temperature which varies in time (with given amplitude and frequency).

    Two Dimensional Numerical Simulation of Mixed Convection in a Rectangular Open Enclosure

    Md. Tofiqul Islam1, Sumon Saha2, Md. Arif Hasan Mamun3, Mohammad Ali4

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.4, No.2, pp. 125-138, 2008, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2008.004.125

    Abstract A numerical study has been performed on mixed convection inside an open cavity on the bottom of a channel. One of the three walls of the cavity experiences a uniform heat flux while the other walls and the top of the channel are adiabatic. Three different cases are considered by applying uniform heat flux on (a) the inflow side (assisting forced flow); (b) the outflow side (opposing forced flow); (c) the bottom horizontal surface (transverse flow). The Galerkin weighted residual method of finite element formulation is used to discretize the governing equations. For mixed convection, the influential parameters are the… More >

    Modeling a Discontinuous CVD Coating Process: I. Model Development and Validation

    Joseph G. Lawrence, Arunan Nadarajah1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.3, No.3, pp. 247-254, 2007, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2007.003.247

    Abstract A simplified 2D pseudo steady state model was developed for an atmospheric chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process on glass. This is used to study the feasibility of converting a continuous coating process to one with discrete glass plates with a gap between them. A preliminary estimate employing mass transfer correlations suggested that there would be significant concentration variations due to the gap between the plates. More detailed studies were done by solving the model numerically employing a finite difference scheme with a vorticity-stream function formulation, and employing the commercial computational fluid dynamics program FIDAP which employs a finite element scheme.… More >

    Numerical Study of Liquid Metal Flow in a Rectangular Duct under the Influence of a Heterogeneous Magnetic Field

    Evgeny V. Votyakov1, Egbert A. Zienicke1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.3, No.2, pp. 97-114, 2007, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2007.003.097

    Abstract We simulated numerically the laminar flow in the geometry and the magnetic field of the experimental channel used in [Andreev, Kolesnikov, and Thess (2006)]. This provides detailed information about the electric potential distribution for the laminar regime (numerical simulation) and in the turbulent regime as well (experiment). As follows from comparison of simulated and experimental results, the flow under the magnet is determined by the interaction parameter N = Ha2 / Re representing the ratio between magnetic force, determined by the Hartmann number Ha, and inertial force, determined by the Reynolds number Re. We compared two variants: (i)(Re,N)=(2000,18.6) (experiment), (400,20.25)… More >

    Numerical Study of Low Frequency G-jitter Effect on Thermal Diffusion

    Y. Yan1, V. Shevtsova2, M. Z. Saghir1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.1, No.4, pp. 315-328, 2005, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2005.001.315

    Abstract Convection has a major impact on diffusion in fluid mixtures either on the Earth or in the microgravity condition. G-jitters, as the primary source that induces the vibrational convection in space laboratories, should be studied thoroughly in order to improve the diffusion-dominated fluid science experiments. In this paper we consider the effect of g-jitters on thermal diffusion. The mixture water-isopropanol (90:10 wt%) bounded in a cubic cell is simulated with a lateral heating and various vibration conditions. The fluid flow, concentration and temperature distributions are thoroughly analyzed for different g-jitter scenarios. It is shown that the overall effect of vibrations… More >

    Numerical Simulation of CZ Crystal Growth of Oxide

    T. Tsukada1, M. Kobayashi2, C. J. Jing3, N. Imaishi4

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.1, No.1, pp. 45-62, 2005, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2005.001.045

    Abstract In this paper, our recent numerical studies on the Czochralski (CZ) crystal growth of oxide are surveyed. In the first part of the analysis, a "global" heat transfer model for an inductively heated CZ furnace is introduced and depicted in detail. It is emphasized that accounting for the internal radiation within the crystal and/or melt is of crucial importance since they are often semitransparent to infrared radiation. Results coming from such a "global" approach suggest that the melt/crystal interface shape is strongly affected by the optical properties of the crystal, of the melt and by the melt convection. The second… More >

    Numerical Simulation of Radiation-Induced Chemical Segregation and Phase Transformation in a Binary System

    Efraín Hernández-Rivera1,2, Veena Tikare1, Lumin Wang2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.38, No.2, pp. 91-103, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.038.091

    Abstract We present the development of a hybrid Monte Carlo-phase field model that is able to simulate radiation induced chemical segregation and the corresponding phase transformation and nano-structure evolution. Under irradiation by a lowenergy ion beam, defects (vacancies) are created and accumulate. In a binary crystalline material, AB, studied in this work, these defects are of the two types A and B and diffuse at different rates. These differential diffusivities are sufficient driving mechanisms for the formation of chemically distinct regions with accompany changes in phases and nano-structure. In this work, we present a model that can simulate these changes by… More >

    Limit Strains Comparison during Tube and Sheet Hydroforming and Sheet Stamping Processes by Numerical Simulation

    C. Nikhare1, K. Narasimhan2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 1-8, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2008.007.001

    Abstract Hydroforming is a manufacturing process that uses a fluid medium to form a component by using high internal pressure. Tube and sheet hydroforming has gained increasing interest in the automotive and aerospace industries because of its many advantages such as part consolidation, good quality of the formed parts etc. The main advantage is that the uniform pressure can be transferred to every where at the same time. Forming limit is the limit of the component up to that extent it can be formed safely. While analyzing hydroforming process, it is often assumed that the limit strains are identical as that… More >

    Haomiao Zhou1,2, Youhe Zhou1,3, Xiaojing Zheng1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.6, No.3, pp. 201-212, 2007, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2007.006.201

    Abstract This paper presents some simulation results of nonlinear dynamic responses for a laminated composite beam embedded by actuators of the giant magnetostrictive material (Terfenol-D) subjected to external magnetic fields, where the giant magnetostrictive materials utilizing the realignment of magnetic moments in response to applied magnetic fields generate nonlinear strains and forces significantly larger than those generated by other smart materials. To utilize the full potential application of the materials in the function and safety designs, e.g., active control of vibrations, the analysis of dynamic responses is requested in the designs as accurately as possible on the basis of those inherent… More >

    Yong Kou1, Ke Jin1, Xiaojing Zheng1,2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.22, No.2, pp. 129-146, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.022.129

    Abstract Magnetic shielding needs to be employed to ensure proper operation of some electronic equipment which are sensitive to external magnetic interference, such as cryogenic valves located inside the ITER feeder cubicles. This paper is concerned with the shielding efficiency of the magnetic shielding enclosures. A 3-D theoretical model for Fe-Ni alloy magnetic shielding enclosures based on finite element method (FEM) is obtained with the nonlinear law of magnetization. The influence of shielding materials, enclosure configurations, single or multi- layer designs, and apertures on the shielding efficiency is investigated. It is shown that the proposed model can predict the shielding efficiency… More >
