Numerical Study of Forced Convection in Wavy and Diverged-Converged Ducts

Abstract

A three-dimensional study of developing fluid flow and heat transfer throughwavy and diverged-converged ducts were studied numerically for a Prandlt number 0.7and 5.85 and compared with flow through corresponding straight duct. The Navier-Stokes and energy equations are solved by using control finite volume method.Development of the Nusselt number in wavy and diverged-converged ducts arepresented for different flow rates (50
