Buoyancydriven fluid flow and heat transfer in a pair of interacting vertical parallel channels
Abstract
The current investigation is concerned with the numerical solution of a problem involving buoyancydriven fluid flow and heat transfer in a system consisting of two vertical parallel channels. The two channels share a common wall across which heat is transferred from one channel to the other. The other bounding wall of each channel is a surface of constant temperature, with different temperatures being prescribed for the respective channels. Attention is given to governing equations and boundary conditions, solution methodology, presentation parameters, surfaceintegrated heat transfer and fluid energy transport, the distributions of the local wall heat flux, and the temperature distribution along the intermediate wall.
