R.IranJournal Article20140717In this paper, conjugate heat transfer of magneto hydrodynamic mixed convection of nanofluid about a vertical slender hollow cylinder embedded in a porous medium with high porosity have been numerically studied. The Forchheimer’s modification of Darcy’s law was used in representing the nanofluid motion inside the porous media. The governing boundary layer equations were transformed to non-dimensional differential equations by taking suitable similarity variables and solved numerically using differential quadrature method (DQM). The interfacial (solid-liquid) temperature distribution and the variations of velocity and temperature within boundary layer for different values of governing parameter in presence of uniform magnetic field have been presented and discussed. Our results demonstrate that heat transfer rate can enhance using nanofluid as well as porous medium, while magnetic field has no remarkable effect on the parameter. The computed results were also compared with those available in the existing literature and a good agreement was observed.http://tpnms.usb.ac.ir/article_2214_beef3d1e5310e5883f92d7be578ea9ff.pdfUniversity of Sistan and Baluchestan,

In numerical study, single and two-phase models have been used. In single-phase modeling of nanofluid, thermal and flow properties of nanofluid have been considered to be dependent on temperature and volume fraction. Effects of volume fraction and Reynolds number (3000<Re<9000) on convective heat transfer coefficient and pressure drop were investigated for various axial locations of the tube. Numerical results have shown that the inclusion of nanoparticles into the base fluid produced a considerable augmentation of the heat transfer coefficient that increases with an increase of the volume fraction and Reynolds number. Moreover, the increase of volume fraction has no effects on the coefficient of friction, but it decreases with increasing Reynolds number. Comparison of numerical results with experiments shows that the results of single- phase analysis is near to the experimental results.http://tpnms.usb.ac.ir/article_2215_7090436c2c4520b7deff9d521cb13a10.pdfUniversity of Sistan and Baluchestan,

IranJournal Article20150220 In this paper the effect of using various models for conductivity and viscosity considering Brownian motion of nanoparticles is investigated. This study is numerically conducted inside a cavity full of Water-Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> nanofluid at the case of mixed convection heat transfer. The effect of some parameters such as the nanoparticle volume fraction, Rayleigh, Richardson and Reynolds numbers has been examined. The governing equations with specified boundary conditions has been solved using finite volume method. A computer code has been prepared for this purpose. The results are presented in form of stream functions, isotherms, Nusselt number and the flow power with and without the Brownian motion taken into consideration. The results show that for all the applied models the stream functions and isotherm have approximately same patterns and no considerable difference has been observed. In all the studied models when considering the Brownian motion, the average Nusselt number is higher than not taking this effect into account. The models of Koo-Kleinstreuer and Li-Kleinstreuer give almost same values for the maximum stream function and average Nusselt number. It is also true about the models of Vajjha-Das and Xiao et al. http://tpnms.usb.ac.ir/article_2216_acc4482d70d701a445174681a004e16b.pdfUniversity of Sistan and Baluchestan,

Since the properties of γ-Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>-water nanofluids were variable, they were defined using the user define function. The results revealed that heat transfer and pressure drop were increased with mass flow rate as well as baffle numbers. Adding nanoparticles to the based fluid did not have a significant effect on pressure drop in the shell side. The best heat transfer performance of heat exchangers was for γ-Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>-water 1 vol.% and higher nanoparticles concentration was not suitable. The suitable baffle spacing was 43.4% of the shell diameter, showing a good agreement with Bell-Delaware method. http://tpnms.usb.ac.ir/article_2217_fc03640ade649816fa27a7dc2ef54146.pdfUniversity of Sistan and Baluchestan,

IranJournal Article20150301The purpose of this paper is to investigate the EGM method and the behavior of a solid particle suspended in a twodimensional rectangular cavity due to conjugate natural convection. A thermal lattice Boltzmann BGK model is implemented to simulate the two dimensional natural convection and the particle phase was modeled using the Lagrangian–Lagrangian approach where the solid particles are treated as points moving in the computational domain as a result of the fluid motion. Entropy generation due to heat transfer irreversibility, isotherms, streamlines and Nusselt numbers were obtained and discussed. Total entropy generations in various cases are also reported and optimum case is presented based on minimum entropy generation.<span id="transmark" style="display: none; width: 0px; height: 0px;"></span>http://tpnms.usb.ac.ir/article_2218_409b21d322ba65244aea5bac67863989.pdfUniversity of Sistan and Baluchestan,

The significant effects of thermophoresis and Brownian motion have been contained in the model of nanofluid flow. The three governing equations are solved simultaneously via Galerkin method. Comparison with other works indicates that this method is very applicable to solve these problems. The semi analytical analysis is accomplished for different governing parameters in the equations e.g. the squeeze number, Eckert number and Hartmann number. The results showed that skin friction coefficient value increases with increasing Hartmann number and squeeze number in a constant Reynolds number. Also, it is shown that the Nusselt number is an incrementing function of Hartmann number while Eckert number is a reducing function of squeeze number. This type of results can help the engineers to make better and researchers to investigate faster and easier.http://tpnms.usb.ac.ir/article_2220_50ed5c7dbf662ee9f6258e90fa073876.pdf
