This study is concerned with the prediction of particles’ velocity in a dilute turbulent gas-solid<br />boundary layer flow using a fully Eulerian two-fluid model. The closures required for equations<br />describing the particulate phase are derived from the kinetic theory of granular flows. Gas phase<br />turbulence is modeled by one-equation model and solid phase turbulence by MLH theory. Results<br />of one-way and two-way coupled approaches are compared with the available experimental and<br />numerical results. Results show that one-way coupled approach is more efficient for particulate<br />velocity prediction in dilute flows. But, if the gas-phase flow characteristics are desired, the twoway<br />coupled approach should be used. Effects of free stream velocity on the coupling are<br />discussed.

The effect of a transverse magnetic field on the boundary layer flow and heat transfer of an<br />isothermal stretching cylinder is analyzed. The governing partial differential equations for the<br />magnetohydrodynamic, temperature, and concentration boundary layers are transformed into a set<br />of ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The obtained ordinary<br />differential equations are numerically solved for a range of non-dimensional parameters. Results<br />show that the presence of a magnetic field would significantly affects the boundary layer profiles.<br />An increase in magnetic parameter would decrease the reduced Nusselt and Sherwood numbers.

Rheological characteristics of Al2O3, CuO and TiO2 nano particles were investigated in oil as<br />the base fluid at 1 and 2 wt.%. Constitutive relations for non-Newtonian fluid were discussed<br />based on the power-law model. Measured viscosities of each nanofluid were used to evaluate<br />the power-law and consistency index. Results indicated that the nanofluid viscosity decreased<br />by increasing the concentration. Oil showed shear thickening behavior while nanofluids showed<br />shear thinning behavior. An increase in nano-particle concentration caused a decrease in the<br />power-law index beside an increase in the consistency index. Moreover, the present study<br />showed that the effective viscosity of fluids would be decreased by nanoparticle addition at<br />some wt.% and some shear rates. Furthermore, results showed that the classic models for<br />nanofluid viscosity couldn’t predict their real values of nano fluid viscosity, as the measured<br />values are less than the predicted ones.

In this paper, second law analysis for calculations of the entropy generation due to the flow and<br />heat transfer of water-Al2O3 and ethylene glycol-Al2O3 nanofluids inside annuli is presented. The<br />physical properties of the nanofluids are calculated using empirical correlations. Constant heat<br />fluxes at inner surface of the annuli are considered and fully developed condition for fluid flow<br />and heat transfer is assumed. The control volume approach is selected for calculation of the<br />entropy generation. Total entropy generation for different values of the nanoparticles volume<br />fractions at different geometrical ratios is obtained and compared with those of the base fluid.<br />Also, the geometrical ratios at which the minimum entropy generation is achieved are presented.<br />The results show that when the ratio of the annuli length to its hydraulic diameter (L/Dh) exceeds<br />some critical values, adding of the nanoparticles is not efficient. For each value of the<br />nanoparticles concentration, there is a length ratio (L/Dh) at which the entropy generation is<br />minimized.

In this study, mixed convection heat transfer and local and global entropy generation in a<br />ventilated square cavity have been investigated numerically. The natural convection effect is<br />achieved by a constant heat flux imposed at the bottom wall and cooled by injecting a cold<br />follow. In order to investigate the effect of port location, four different placement<br />configurations of the inlet and outlet ports are studied. In each case, external flow enters into<br />the cavity through an inlet port in the left side of the cavity and exits from the opposite side.<br />The other boundaries are assumed adiabatic. The cavity is subjected to laminar flow of water.<br />The investigation has been carried out for the Re=1000, and the Richardson number with the<br />range of 0.0001(Global Entropy Generation), Heat Transfer Irreversibility (HTI) and Fluid Friction<br />Irreversibility (FFI) are calculated and compared. Then, the optimum inlet/outlet configuration<br />has been selected based on the minimum GEG and the maximum heat transfer.

Experimental study of effective thermal conductivity of ZnO/EG nanofluid is presented in this<br />research. The nanofluid was prepared by dispersing Zno nanoparticles in ethylene glycol using a<br />sonicator and adding surfactant. Ethylene glycol based nanofluid containing ZnO nanoparticle<br />with a nominal diameter of 18 nm at different solid volume fractions (very low to high) at<br />various temperatures was examined for the investigation. The thermal conductivity of nanofluids<br />is experimentally measured with THW method and it is found that the thermal conductivity of<br />nanofluids increase with the nanoparticle volume concentration and temperature. Also, based on<br />experimental values of thermal conductivity of nanofluid, three experimental models are<br />proposed to predict thermal conductivity of nanofluids. The proposed models show reasonably<br />excellent agreement with our experimental results.

The main purpose of this paper is to introduce a boundary layer analysis for the fluid flow and<br />heat transfer characteristics of an incompressible nanofluid flowing over a permeable isothermal<br />surface moving continuously. The resulting system of non-linear ordinary differential equations is<br />solved numerically using the fifth–order Runge–Kutta method with shooting techniques using<br />Matlab and Maple softwares. Numerical results are obtained for the velocity, temperature, and<br />concentration distributions, as well as the friction factor, local Nusselt number, and local<br />Sherwood number for several values of the parameters, namely the velocity ratio parameter,<br />suction/injection parameter, and nanofluid parameters. The obtained results are presented<br />graphically in tabular forms and the physical aspects of the problem are discussed.
