Seyed Mostafa Moafi Madani; Javad Alinejad; Yasser Rostamiyan; Keivan Fallah

Volume 13, Issue 1 , September 2023, , Pages 67-74


  In the present study, the effect of the heating pipe profile on natural convection in a two-phase fluid inside a cavity has been investigated. This geometry has been simulated with the LB Method based on the D2Q9 model for analyzing stream lines, dimensionless velocity field of fluid flow, solid particles ...  Read More

Investigation of natural convection heat transfer of MHD hybrid nanofluid in a triangular enclosure

Ali Akbar rashidi; Ehsan Kianpour

Volume 10, Issue 2 , April 2021, , Pages 539-549


  Natural convection heat transfer is studied numerically in a triangular enclosure. The enclosure is isosceles right triangle and its bottom wall is hot, the hypotenuse is cold and the other wall is adiabatic. Also, a vertical magnetic field is applied in the enclosure; and there is hybrid nanofluid inside ...  Read More

Effects of heat generation/absorption on natural convection of nanofluids over the vertical plate embedded in a porous medium using drift-flux model

M. Ghalambaz; A. Noghrehabadi

Volume 3, Issue 2 , June 2014, , Pages 113-123


  In this paper, natural convection heat transfer over a vertical plate in a Darcy porous medium saturated with a nanofluid subject to heat generation/absorption was theoretically studied. The governing partial differential equations were transformed to a set of ordinary differential equations using similarity ...  Read More
