Reports from National Institute of Technology Add New Data to Findings in Heat Transfer Research (Mixed convective transport in a lid-driven cavity containing a nanofluid and a rotating circular cylinder at the center)
By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Fresh data on Heat Transfer Research are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Durgapur, India, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "The mixed convective transport of Cu-H2O nanofluid in a differentially heated and lid-driven square enclosure in the presence of a rotating circular cylinder is investigated numerically. The top wall of the enclosure is sliding from left to right at a uniform speed while all other walls are stationary."
Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the National Institute of Technology, "A thermally insulated circular cylinder is placed centrally within the enclosure. The cylinder can rotate about its centroidal axis. The top and bottom walls are kept isothermal at different temperatures while the side walls are assumed adiabatic. Simulations are performed for, Richardson number 1
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "It is observed that the heat transfer greatly depends on the rotational speed of the cylinder, mixed convective strength and the nanoparticle concentration."
