Description

Nanofluid in Heat Exchanges for Mechanical Systems: Numerical Simulation shows how the finite volume method is used to simulate various applications of heat exchanges. Heat transfer enhancement methods are introduced in detail, along with a hydrothermal analysis and second law approaches for heat exchanges. The melting process in heat exchanges is also covered, as is the influence of variable magnetic fields on the performance of heat exchange. This is an important reference source for materials scientists and mechanical engineers who are looking to understand the main ways that nanofluid flow is simulated and applied in industry.

Key Features

  • Provides detailed coverage of major models used in nanofluid analysis, including the finite volume method, governing equations for turbulent flow, and equations of nanofluid in presence of variable magnetic field
  • Offers detailed coverage of swirling flow devices and melting processes
  • Assesses which models should be applied in which situations

Readership

Materials scientists and mechanical engineers, mathematical scientists who are interested in numerical simulation
