[Gr.sub.d]: Grashof number
based on the width of the left side slot
To evaluate the accuracy and convergence of MACB scheme with conventional methods, a couple of simulations were conducted at different Reynolds and Grashof Numbers
. Also, conventional CB was tested and its results were reported here.
The influence of thermal Grashof number
Gr and mass Grashof number
Gm on velocity and microrotation is depicted from Figures 8-11.
Nomenclature a': Accelerating parameter a: Dimensionless accelerating parameter [a.sup.*]: Absorption coefficient [C.sub.p]: Specific heat at constant pressure [B.sub.0]: Transverse magnetic field strength Gr: Grashof number
g: Acceleration due to gravity [kappa]: Thermal conductivity of the fluid k': Permeability parameter k: Dimensionless permeability parameter M: Magnetic field parameter Nu: Nusselt number Pr: Prandtl number [q.sub.r]: Radiative heat flux in the y direction R: Radiation parameter t':.
The fluid flow covers the whole domain but it is weak because of lower Grashof number
(2*[10.sup.4]) and it is clear in magnitude of maximum stream function ([[PSI].sub.max]=+0.07109).
Effects of the parameters namely Hartmann number M Grashof number
Gr heat source parameter N and Prandtl number P have been observed on velocity and temperature distributions.
considers natural convection's impact inside the medium.
Figure 4(d) demonstrates the effect of thermal and concentration buoyancy forces, that is, Grashof number
(Gr) and modified Grashof number
(Gm) on the microrotation profiles.
where [alpha] is the thermal conductivity, Gr and Le are the Grashof number
and Lewis number, respectively.
In addition, the empirical correlations of the natural convection, radiation, and total heat loss Nusselt numbers versus the Grashof number
, tilt angle, and ambient temperature were proposed.
At each value of the magnetic field, an increase in the Grashof number
would directly increase the velocity via the increased Boussinesq source terms and hence also the magnitude of the slope of the velocity at the wall.
