Control Volume based Finite Element Methods (CVFEM) is a powerful numerical method that uses the advantages of both finite volume and finite element methods for simulation of multi-physics problems in complex geometries. It has several important applications in heat transfer and nanofluid flow.
In this book, CVFEM is applied to solve various application of nanofluid in heat transfer enhancement. At first this is introduced by details. And then Nanofluid flow and heat transfer, Magnetohydrodynamic flow, Electrohydrodynamic flow and heat transfer, Melting heat transfer, nanofluid flow in porous media within several examples are explained.
This is an important research reference that will help readers understand the principles and applications of this novel method for the analysis of nanofluid behaviour in a range of external forces
- Explains governing equations for nanofluid as working fluid
- Includes several CVFEM codes for use in nanofluid flow analysis
- Shows how external forces such as electric fields and magnetic field effects nanofluid flow
Materials scientists, physicists, mathematicians and information scientists analyzing the performance of nanolfuid flow
