A pore-scale assessment of the dynamic response of forced convection in porous media to inlet flow modulations
An increasing number of technologies require prediction of unsteady forced convection in porous media when the inlet flow is unsteady. To gain further insight into this problem, the unsteady equations of continuity, Navier ...
State prediction of an entropy wave advecting through a turbulent channel flow
(Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2020-01-10)
Survival of entropy waves during their advection throughout a combustor is central to the generation of entropic sound and the subsequent effects upon thermoacoustic stability of the system. However, the decay and spatial ...
Heat and mass transfer and thermodynamic analysis of power-law fluid flow in a porous microchannel
Transfer of heat and mass and thermodynamic irreversibilities are investigated in a porous, parallel-plate microreactor in which the working fluid is non-Newtonian. The investigated microreactor features thick flat walls ...
Lift characteristics of two tandem airfoils in the globally unstable wake of a heated cylinder
In this numerical study, we use two-dimensional scale-adaptive simulations to investigate the lift characteristics of two tandem airfoils in the globally unstable wake of a cylinder at a Reynolds number of 104, with and ...
Understanding droplet collision with superhydrophobic-hydrophobic–hydrophilic hybrid surfaces
This study uses a two-phase finite volume method to investigate the dynamics of Newtonian and non-Newtonian droplets impacting onto hybrid surfaces with various wettabilities. Six configurations with different substrate ...
Modeling Validation of Tubing Compaction for Rigless Well Plug and Abandonment

A Machine Learning Approach to Predicting the Heat Convection and Thermodynamics of an External Flow of Hybrid Nanofluid
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2021-01-15)
Experimental study of a hemispherical three-dimensional solar collector operating with silver-water nanofluid
In this experimental study, a fixed three-dimensional solar collector with a hemispherical geometry has been evaluated in accordance with ASHRAE standards. The collector features spiral tubes that transport fluid from the ...
Thermal-natural convection and entropy production behavior of hybrid nanoliquid flow under the effects of magnetic field through a porous wavy cavity embodies three circular cylinders
In this numerical contribution, hybrid nanofluid flow behavior, thermal characteristics, and entropy generation analysis through a porous enclosure containing three circular cylinders with magnetic field effects were ...
Natural convection of CuO-water nanofluid in a conventional oil/water separator cavity: Application to combined-cycle power plants
The oily water from various sources in combined cycle power plants is collected in oil/water separator in which the oil separates from water due to the density difference. The idea of the presented geometry is taken from ...
