Free convection in a triangular enclosure with fluid-saturated porous medium and internal heat generation
Saha, Suvash C. & Gu, YuanTong (2011) Free convection in a triangular enclosure with fluid-saturated porous medium and internal heat generation. In 10th Engineering Mathematics and Applications Conference, 4th - 7th December 2011, University of Technology Sydney,Sydney. (Unpublished)
Unsteady natural convection inside a triangular cavity has been studied in this study. The cavity is filled with a saturated porous medium with non-isothermal left inclined wall while the bottom surface is isothermally heated and the right inclined surface is isothermally cold. An internal heat generation is also considered which is dependent of the fluid temperature. The governing equations are solved numerically by finite element method. The Prandtl number of the fluid is considered as 0.7 (air) while the aspect ratio and the Rayleigh number are considered as 0.5 and 105 respectively. The effect of the porosity of the medium and heat generation on the fluid flow and heat transfer have been presented as a form of streamlines and isotherms. The rate of heat transfer through three surfaces of the enclosure is also presented.
