Flow of a Thermoviscous Fluid through an Annular Tube with Constriction
Keywords: Thermoviscous fluid, constriction, annular region, Nusselt number, flow characteristics, flow rate, heat transfer
AbstractThe flow of thermoviscous fluid within the annulus of circular cylinders with a localconstriction at the outer wall is investigated analytically, assuming that the constriction is non-symmetric wrt the radial distance. Analytical solutions for velocity and temperature fields havebeen obtained. The effect of the shape parameter of the constriction on velocity, temperature,Nusselt number, and flow rate are illustrated graphically and discussed.
