Abstract:A parametric study is implemented to study the impact of inflow conditions, rheology, and thermo-physical properties on the flow and heat transfer behavior of suddenly expanding, recirculating, and non-recirculating, viscoplastic non-Newtonian flows. The governing mass and fully-elliptic partial differential equations of motion and energy along with the Bingham constitutive equations are numerically solved to provide accurate predictions of the velocity and temperature fields. The expansion ratio was fixed at … 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.
