The purpose of this paper is to study the natural convection and radiation heat transfer inside Nonagon inclined cavity with variable heated source length, which contains a porous medium saturated with nanofluid in the presence of uniform heat generation or absorption under the effect of uniform magnetic field with variable direction. The shape factor of nano particles is taking account for the model of nanofluid.
This study is established in two-dimensional space. The 2D numerical study is effectuated with Comsol Multiphysics based on the on the finite element method. The 2D equation system is exposed on dimensionless form taking into account the boundary conditions.
Results obtained show that the convection heat transfer is ameliorated with the augmentation of heated source length. The convection heat transfer is enhanced by increasing Rayleigh, Darcy numbers and the heated source length; however, it is reduced by rising Hartmann number. The presence of radiation parameter lead to improve the convection heat transfer in the presence of both uniform heat generation/absorption. The average Nusselt number reaches a maximum for an inclination of cavity γ = 45° and a minimum for γ = 60°. Both the increase of the shape factor of nano particles and the solid fraction of nano particles improve the convection heat transfer.
Different studies have been realized to study the heat transfer inside cavity contains porous medium saturated with nanofluid under magnetic field effect. In this work, the Nonagon geometric of cavity studied has never been studied. In addition, the effect of radiation parameter with relation of the shape factor of nanoparticles in the presence of uniform heat generation/absorption on the heat transfer performance have never been investigated. Also, the effect of magnetic field direction with relation of the inclination cavity on heat transfer performance.
In this paper, a 2D numerical study of natural convection heat transfer in a W-shaped inclined enclosure with a variable aspect ratio was performed. The enclosure contained a porous medium saturated with Ag/Al2O3 hybrid nanofluid in the presence of uniform heat generation or absorption under the effect of a uniform magnetic field. The vertical walls of the enclosure were heated differentially; however, the top and bottom walls were kept insulated. The governing equations were solved with numerical simulation software COMSOL Multiphysics which is based on the finite element method. The results showed that the convection heat transfer was improved with the increase of the aspect ratio; the average Nusselt number reached a maximum for an aspect ratio (AR) = 0.7 and the effect of the inclination was practically negligible for an aspect ratio of AR = 0.7. The maximum heat transfer performance was obtained for an inclination of ω = 15 and the minimum is obtained for ω = 30 . The addition of composite nanoparticles ameliorated the convection heat transfer performance. This effect was proportional to the increase of Rayleigh and Darcy numbers, the aspect ratio and the fraction of Ag in the volumetric fraction of nanoparticles.
The purpose of this paper is to examine numerically the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) free convection and thermal radiation heat transfer of single walled carbon nanotubes-water nanofluid within T-inverted shaped corrugated cavity comprising porous media including uniform heat source/sink for solar energy power plants applications.
The two-dimensional numerical simulation is performed by drawing on Comsol Multiphysics program, based on the finite element process.
The important results obtained show that increasing numbers of Rayleigh and Darcy and the parameter of radiation enhance the flow of convection heat. Furthermore, by increasing the corrugation height, the convection flow increases, but it decreases with the multiplication of the corrugation height. The use of a flat cavity provides better output than a corrugated cavity.
The role of surface corrugation parameters on the efficiency of free convection and heat transfer of thermal radiation within the porous media containing the T-inverted corrugated cavity including uniform heat source/sink under the impact of Lorentz forces has never been explored. A contrast is also established between a flat cavity and a corrugated one.
This study aims to study numerically the free convection and thermal radiation of an Ag‐water nanofluid inside an L‐shaped inclined microelectronic module under inclined Lorentz forces and uniform heat generation/absorption effects. The study is established using the software COMSOL Multiphysics based on the finite element method. The main results obtained show that convection heat flow enhances by increasing the Rayleigh number, radiation parameter and nanoparticles shape factor, however, it reduces with increasing the Hartmann number and the aspect ratio. In addition, the presence of uniform heat absorption improves the convection heat flow, by contrast, the presence of uniform heat generation damages this. Besides this, the Lorentz forces' directional impact on the convection heat flow is linked to module inclination. The average Nusselt reaches a maximum for module inclination
