    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 >

    Primary and Secondary Flows on Unsteady MHD Free Convective Micropolar Fluid Flow Past an Inclined Plate in a Rotating System: a Finite Element Analysis

    M. D. Shamshuddin1, *, P. V. Satya Narayana2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 57-86, 2018, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2018.014.057

    Abstract In the present paper, a numerical analysis is performed to study the primary and secondary flows of a micropolar fluid flow past an inclined plate with viscous dissipation and thermal radiation in a rotating frame. A uniform magnetic field of strength Bo is applied normal to the plane of the plate. The whole system rotates with uniform angular velocity about an axis normal to the plate. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into coupled nonlinear partial differential equations by using the appropriate dimensionless quantities. The resulting equations are then solved by the Galerkin finite More >

    Numerical Analysis on Unsteady Internal Flow in an Evaporating Droplet

    Zhentao Wang1,*, Kai Dong, Shuiqing Zhan

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.13, No.4, pp. 221-234, 2017, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2017.013.221

    Abstract We have investigated the unsteady internal flow occurring in an evaporating droplet interacting with a high-temperature atmospheric environment. The Navier-Stokes equations for both the liquid and the gas phases have been solved numerically in the framework of a Volume of Fluid (VOF) method relying on the so-called Continuum Surface Force (CSF) model. A specific kernel able to account for evaporation and related phase change has been incorporated directly in the VOF approach. The temperature distributions within the droplet has been found to be relatively uniform by virtue of the Marangoni flow. The transient evolution of More >

    Unsteady MHD Free Convection Past an Impulsively Started Isothermal Vertical Plate with Radiation and Viscous Dissipation

    Hawa Singh1, Paras Ram2, Vikas Kumar3

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.10, No.4, pp. 521-550, 2014, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2014.010.521

    Abstract The fluctuating flow produced by magneto - hydrodynamic free convection past an impulsively started isothermal vertical plate is studied taking into account the effects of radiation and viscous dissipation. By using the similarity transformation, the governing equations are transformed into dimensionless form and then the system of nonlinear partial differential equations is solved by a perturbation technique. The considered uniform magnetic field acts perpendicular to the plate, which absorbs the fluid with a given suction velocity. A comparison is made in velocity and temperature profiles for two particular cases of real and imaginary time dependent More >

    An Implicit Unsteady Finite Volume Formulation for Natural Convection in a Square Cavity

    Edoardo Bucchignani1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.5, No.1, pp. 37-60, 2009, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2009.005.037

    Abstract This article describes an implicit method for the solution of time dependent Navier-Stokes equations written in terms of vorticity and velocity. The field equations are discretized using a finite volume technique over quadrilateral meshes.
    The numerical code has been applied to the classical window cavity test, employing a fine stretched non-uniform grid, in order to provide an accurate steady solution for a high value of the Rayleigh number (108). It has also been performed a simulation for a value of Rayleigh larger than the critical value, in order to show the capabilities of the proposed More >

    Ionic Polymer Metal Composite Flapping Actuator Mimicking Dragonflies

    Sujoy Mukherjee1, Ranjan Ganguli1,2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.19, No.2, pp. 105-134, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.019.105

    Abstract In this study, variational principle is used for dynamic modeling of an Ionic Polymer Metal Composite (IPMC) flapping wing. The IPMC is an Electro-active Polymer (EAP) which is emerging as a useful smart material for `artificial muscle' applications. Dynamic characteristics of IPMC flapping wings having the same size as the actual wings of three different dragonfly species Aeshna Multicolor, Anax Parthenope Julius and Sympetrum Frequens are analyzed using numerical simulations. An unsteady aerodynamic model is used to obtain the aerodynamic forces. A comparative study of the performances of three IPMC flapping wings is conducted. Among More >
