Краткое описание

The problem of steady, laminar, natural convective flow of electrically-conducting liquid metals such as gallium and germanium in an inclined rectangular enclosure in the presence of a uniform magnetic field is considered. Transverse gradient of heat is applied on two opposing walls of the inclined enclosure while the other two walls are adiabatic. A magnetic field is applied normal to the non-insulated walls. The problem is formulated in terms of the vorticity - stream function procedure. A numerical solution based on the finite-difference method is obtained. Representative results illustrating the effects of the enclosure inclination angle and the Hartmann number for two different Rayleigh numbers on the contour maps of the streamlines and temperature as well as the profiles of velocity components and temperature at mid-section of the enclosure are reported. In addition, results for the average Nusselt number are presented and discussed for various parametric conditions.
