Heat and Mass Transfer
Optimizing naturally driven air flow in a vertical pipe by changing the intensity and location of the wall heat flux

M. Rahimi; M. Khalafi-Salout

Volume 5, Issue 2 , June 2016, , Pages 137-145


  Heat transfer from the internal surfaces of a vertical pipe to the adjacent air gives rise to the air flow establishment within the pipe. With the aim of optimizing the convective air flow rate in a vertical pipe, the details of the flow and thermal fields were investigated in the present study. Conservation ...  Read More

Heat and Mass Transfer
Applying a full implicit finite-difference method in jet impingement heat transfer studies

M. Rahimi; M. Mortazaei

Volume 4, Issue 1 , December 2014, , Pages 89-99


  Jet impingement heat transfer is an effective and practical approach that is employed in many industrial processes where heating, cooling, or drying is required. Details of the heat or mass transfer rate have been investigated both experimentally and numerically and can be found in the published literature. ...  Read More
