Entrainment and turbulence characteristics of low-velocity isothermal and buoyant jets
The current study examined the transition region of axisymmetric isothermal and buoyant jets of low Reynolds number, directed vertically upwards into a stagnant, unstratified ambient. These flows were examined experimentally ...
Force and Heat Generation in a Conducting Sphere in an Alternating Magnetic Field
The interaction of an electrically conducting sphere with a time varying magnetic ﬁeld is useful in the study of "containerless" processing methods such as electromagnetic levitation melting. The fundamental quantities of ...
Wavelets and the discrete ordinate method for the solution of radiative heat transfer through a participating medium
Wavelet method is applied to the study of radiative heat transfer and combined conductive-radiative heat transfer through the gray and nongray participating medium in one- and two-dimensional (1-D and 2-D) geometries. The ...
Interfacial dynamics of liquid droplets and thermophysical property measurement
The interfacial dynamics of a viscous droplet immersed in a viscous medium are considered. The characteristic equation is derived using a normal-mode analysis, and solved for arbitrary, finite fluid properties. The cylinder ...
Radiation and convection heat transfer in particle-laden fluid flow
Combined radiation, convection, and conduction heat transfer are studied in a dispersed two phase flow of gray, laminar, axisymmetric media, where both phases are radiatively participating. The radiative transfer equation ...
