Abstract:Natural convection from a circular cylinder in oscillating flows has been simulated by projection method with two dimensional exponential stretched staggered cylindrical meshes. Present numerical results are validated by comparing the heat transfer results of free convection over a circular cylinder to published experimental and numerical results. The effects of wave directions, amplitudes, frequencies and buoyancy forces on the enhancement of heat transfer have also been presented. Based on turning points of … 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.
