Rayleigh–Bénard convection of a viscoplastic liquid in a trapezoidal enclosure
AGHIGHI, M.S.; AMMAR, Ammar; MASOUMI, H.; LANJABI, A.
.The objective of this paper is to clarify the role of sloping walls on convective heat transport in Rayleigh–Bénard convection within a trapezoidal enclosure filled with viscoplastic fluid. The rheology of the viscoplastic fluid has been modeled with Bingham fluid model. The system of coupled nonlinear differential equations was solved numerically by Galerkin's weighted residuals scheme of finite element method. The numerical experiments are carried out for a range of parameter values, namely, Rayleigh number (5.103 ≤ Ra ≤ 105), yield number (0 ≤ Y ≤ Yc), and sidewall inclination angle (ϕ = 0, π/6, π/4, π/3) at a fixed Prandtl number (Pr = 500). Effects of the inclination angle on the flow and temperature fields are presented. The results reveal that inclination angle causes a multicellular flow and appears as the main parameter to govern heat transfer in the cavity. The heat transfer rate is found to increase with the increasing angle of the sloping wall for both Newtonian and yield stress fluids. On the other hand, the plug regions also found to increase with increasing φ, which is unusual but perhaps not unexpected behavior. In the yield stress fluids, the flow becomes motionless above a critical yield number Yc because the plug regions invade the whole cavity. The critical yield number Yc is also affected by the change of inclination angle and increases significantly with the increase of φ.

Double-diffusive natural convection of Casson fluids in an enclosure
AGHIGHI, M.S.; AMMAR, Amine; MASOUMI, H.
This study investigates the double-diffusive natural convection of the non-Newtonian Casson fluid in a square cavity based on the original viscoplastic stress model without simplification. Therefore, yield stress plays an essential role in understanding fluid behavior. The finite element approach provided a numerical solution to continuity, momentum, energy, and species governing equations. The governing parameters for this problem are Rayleigh number, Ra, yield number, Y, buoyancy ratio number, Nr, and Lewis number, Le. The influence of these parameters on heat and mass transfer, the morphology of yielded/unyielded regions, and fluid flow are thoroughly examined.
The results show that unyielded regions increase at high Rayleigh numbers, despite the increase in buoyancy force and consequently increased heat and mass transfer. On the other hand, as the buoyancy ratio drops, the flow’s strength and heat and mass transmission diminish, leading to an increase in plug regions. Accordingly, the mechanisms influencing the growth of unyielded regions are complex and follow different patterns. However, the plug regions always grow with increasing Y. The results indicate that increasing the Lewis number (mass transfer) reduces the effect of the buoyancy ratio on flow, heat transfer, and the unyielded regions in every case.
Quantitative analysis of the results indicates that, while buoyancy ratio affects heat and mass transfer almost equally, the Lewis number increases mass transfer up to three times the heat transfer. Meanwhile, changing the buoyancy ratio can increase the maximum yield stress to 400%, while changing the Lewis number has a maximum effect of 20%.
