Nanofluid turbulent forced convection through a solar flat plate collector with Al2O3 nanoparticles
A numerical approach has been offered in this investigation regarding the turbulent three-dimensional flow due to utilizing twisted tape insets. Solar heat flux was employed to augment the temperature of nanomaterial. Streamline and velocity as well as turbulent intensity are shown in contours. In addition, the simulations with FVM accomplish to capture the behavior of thermal performance with variation of Reynolds number, diameter ratio and number of revolution. Selecting lower diameter ratio results in the thicker thermal boundary layer. Thermal performance is directly proportional to both geometric variables.
