Hydrodynamic And Heat Transfer Performance Of Shear Thinning Fluid Flow In Chaotic Geometry Under The Effect Of Rheological Fluid Behavior

Authors : Naas Toufik Tayeb .


A numerical analysis of non-Newtonian laminar flow and heat transfer in three-dimensional chaotic geometry has been performed. The steady equations of conservation, mass, Navier-Stokes and energy are solved by using CFD code. The creation entropy in the flow is estimated for a various generalized Reynolds number (Reg) and for different values of the power law index of the fluid n. The results show that the entropy generation depends to the both heat performances and power law index of the fluid.
