Solid-phase effects on the performance of a centrifugal slurry pump using computational fluid dynamics

Mohammad Reza Aligoodarz; Mohsen Dalvandi; Abdollah Mehrpanahi

Volume 11, Issue 1 , September 2021, , Pages 243-255


  The centrifugal slurry pump is the most common slurry flow pump used in mining industries. The pump head and efficiency are affected by the size, concentration, and density of solid particle when these pumps are applied for the control of slurries. Because the suspended solids in the liquid could not ...  Read More

Experimental study and numerical simulation of three dimensional two phase impinging jet flow using anisotropic turbulence model

Hamid Reza Nazif

Volume 10, Issue 1 , September 2020, , Pages 257-269


  Hydrodynamic of a turbulent impinging jet on a flat plate has been studied experimentally and numerically. Experiments were conducted for the Reynolds number range of 72000 to 102000 and a fixed jet-to-plate dimensionless distance of H/d=3.5. Based on the experimental setup, a multi-phase numerical model ...  Read More

Bending of exponentially graded plates using new HSDT

Bathini Sidda Reddy; Ch. Ravikiran; K. Vijaya Kumar Reddy

Volume 11, Issue 1 , September 2021, , Pages 257-277


  The present paper considers the devise and development of a novel theory to examine the flexure analysis of exponentially graded plates exposed to thermal and mechanical loads. The properties such as elastic modulus and thermal modulus are assumed to vary exponentially along the thickness by keeping ...  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
