Analytical and Numerical Investigation of Mixed Convection Flow and Boundary Layer Control of a Nano Fluid with Heat Generation

Raj Kumar [59] | Valmeti Sudheer

Abstract: In this project, boundary layer mixed convection fluid flow, heat transfer generation of a Nano fluid over a semi-infinite flat plate of 50*10*2mm with heat generation effects are investigated analytically. The velocity, Nusselt number, Reynolds number, entropy, heat transfer coefficient profiles as well as skin friction and heat transfer rates are determined for different Prandtl number 0.01, 0.1, 1, 10, 100 for different Nano fluids. The base fluid water is mixed with Nano particles of Aluminium oxide, Copper Oxide with different volume fractions 0.4 & 0.6 are considered. The properties of the Nano fluids are calculated theoretically. CFD Fluent analysis is done in ANSYS. The boundary condition for CFD analysis is velocity of fluid which is calculated for different Prandtl number and mixed convection values.
