Краткое описание

In the present paper, we systematically study the effects of the heater length (Wp), as well as of the Richardson (Ri), Lewis (Le), and Reynolds (Re) numbers on the irreversibility production of double-diffusive mixed convection in an open enclosure with a reactant fluid. The fluid with temperature-dependent viscosity and thermal conductivity enters and leaves the enclosure through the inlet and outlet located at the left and right, respectively. Moreover, a heat source located at the bottom wall transfers energy to the fluid, and thermochemical conversion takes place inside the enclosure. At the inlet the fluid is considered to have a high concentration, while a low concentration is imposed over the heater. The studied cases cover Ri = 0.75–5, Le = 0.1–5, Wp = 0.2–0.4, and Re = 100–1000. The results include the temperature and concentration contours, average concentration profiles, average Nusselt number, global total entropy generation, and the average Bejan number. Simulations indicate that the thermochemical conversion is practically independent of the length of the heater, and its highest value or lowest concentration of the flow occurs at Le = 5, Ri = 1.25, and Re = 100. Furthermore, the entropy production is minimized at Wp = 0.3, Re = 100, Ri = 0.75, and Le = 2.5. Therefore, the optimal condition of the thermochemical conversion device is attained at Le = 2.5, Wp = 0.3, Re = 100, and 0.75 ≤ Ri ≤ 1.25.
