Free Convection Flow of a Non-Newtonian Fluid in a Vertical Channel
AbstractThe steady two-dimensional free convection flow of a Walters fluid (model B') in a vertical channel one 'of whose walls is wavy, has been investigated analytically. The governing equationsof the fluid and the heat transfer have been solved subject to the relevant boundary conditions byassuming that the solution consists of two parts: a mean part and disturbance or perturbed part. Toobtain the perturbed part of the solution, the long wave approximation has been used and to solvethe mean part, a well-known approximation used by Ostrach has been utilised. The relevant flow and the heat transfer characteristics, namely the skin-friction and the rate ofheat transfer at both the wallshave been discussed in detail.
