Abstract:Numerical results are presented for laminar impinging flow and heat transfer with a non-Newtonian inelastic fluid in a planar two dimensional geometry. Bifurcation diagrams are computed to characterize flow separation and reattachment in steady flow. For a range of rheological parameters calculations show that the dimensionless wall jet heat transfer rate Q may be correlated as RP1.3 where RP is the reattachment coordinate of the primary vortex scaled with the jet half-width, thus quantifying the extent of enh… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
