  • Mixed Convection of Bingham Fluid in a Two Sided Lid-Driven Cavity Heated From Below
  • Abstract This study aims to analyze mixed convection in a square cavity with two moving vertical walls by finite volume method. The cavity filled with Non-Newtonian fluid of Bingham model is heated from below and cooled by the other walls. This study has been conducted for certain parameters of Reynolds number (Re=1-100), Richardson number (Ri=1-20), Prandtl number (Pr=1-500), and Bingham number has been studied from 0 to 10. The results indicate that the increase in yield stress drops the heat transfer and the flow become flatter, while increasing Reynolds number augments it. The convective transport is dominant when increasing Richardson number…

  • The Effect of the Fin Length on the Solidification Process in a Rectangular Enclosure with Internal Fins
  • Abstract The aim of the proposed work is to study the solidification process within a rectangular enclosure provided with three internal rectangular fins attached to the left vertical wall of the cavity. This latest is filled with a phase change material (PCM), initially liquid, at a temperature above its melting temperature. The solidification process was initiated by cooling the left wall and fins to a temperature lower than the melting temperature. In order to study and examine the thermal behavior and thermal performance of the proposed system, a mathematical model, based on the conservation equations of mass, momentum and energy was…

  • Numerical Simulation of Double Diffusive Mixed Convection in a Horizontal Annulus with Finned Inner Cylinder
  • Abstract The present work relates to a numerical investigation of double diffusive mixed convection around a horizontal annulus with a finned inner cylinder. The solutal and thermal buoyancy forces are sustained by maintaining the inner and outer cylinders at uniform temperatures and concentrations. Buoyancy effects are also considered, with the Boussinesq approximation. The forced convection effect is induced by the outer cylinder rotating with an angular velocity (ω) in an anti-clockwise direction. The studies are made for various combinations of dimensionless numbers; buoyancy ratio number (N), Lewis number (Le), Richardson number (Ri) and Grashof number (Gr). The isotherms, isoconcentrations and streamlines…

  • Optimization of a Centrifugal Pump Used as a Turbine Impeller By Means of an Orthogonal Test Approach
  • Abstract A prototype centrifugal pump with a specific speed of 110 is used to investigate and optimize the performances of a turbine for power generation. Particular attention is given to the design of the internal impeller. The internal flow field is simulated in the framework of a commercial computational fluid dynamics software (ANSYS). Four geometrical parameters of the impeller are considered, i.e., the inlet diameter, the inlet width, the blade number, and the blade angle. The optimization is carried out on the basis of a three-level approach relying on an orthogonal test method. The results of the numerical simulations show good…

  • A Study on Microstructural and Mechanical Properties of a Stir Cast Al (SiC-Mg-TiFe) Composite
  • Abstract Development of metal matrix composite is becoming widespread in most engineering applications where excellent mechanical properties are required. Mechanical and microstructural properties of aluminium reinforced with silicon carbide was investigated. Ingot of aluminium was melted in a furnace at temperature ranging between 650-700 ℃. Ferrotitanium and silicon carbide were preheated in a muffle furnace before addition to molten aluminium in a crucible furnace. Fixed proportions of magnesium, ferrotitanium and varying proportions of silicon carbide were utilized as reinforcements. Stirring was carried out manually for a minimum of 10 mins after the addition of each weight percent of silicon carbide. Resulting…

  • Numerical Simulation and Optimization of a Mid-Temperature Heat Pipe Exchanger
  • Abstract In this paper, we take the mid-temperature gravity heat pipe exchanger as the research object, simulate the fluid flow field, temperature field and the working state of heat pipe in the heat exchanger by Fluent software. The effects of different operating parameters and fin parameters on the heat transfer performance of heat exchangers are studied. The results show that the heat transfer performance of the mid-temperature gravity heat pipe exchanger is the best when the fin spacing is between 5 mm and 6 mm, the height of the heat pipe is between 12 mm and 13 mm, and the inlet…

  • A Reasonable Approach for the Development of Shale Gas Wells with Consideration of the Stress Sensitivity
  • Abstract High-pressure deep shale gas reservoirs are usually highly stress-sensitive. When the reasonable production mode of shale gas well is built, the impact of strong stress sensitivity should be fully considered. First, this study calculated the relationship between permeability and formation pressure under different elastic modulus based on the shale lithology of Long Ma Xi formation in Sichuan Basin by testing and analysing the mechanical parameters of the rock. According to numerical simulation result, when the elastic modulus exceeds 14.0 GPa, the stress sensitivity of the matrix will slight affect the cumulative gas production of shale gas. Second, the changing relation…

  • A Study on the Properties of Resin Transfer Molding Cyanate Ester and Its T800 Grade Carbon Fiber Composites
  • Abstract The properties of resin transfer molding (RTM) cyanate ester and its T800 grade carbon fiber composites were studied with the rheometer, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), FT-IR, dynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), mechanical property testing, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

  • Abstract Detection of weld defects using real-time monitoring and controlling algorithm is of the significant task in manufacturing industries due to the increased production and liability costs that result when weld defects are not identified early in the production cycle. Monitoring and controlling for robotic arc welding process employed should be reliable, flexible and cost-effective in non-clean, high-volume production environments.
