Unsteady Couette Flow of Dusty Fluid Past Between Two Riga Plates
AbstractThe present study is carried out on the unsteady laminar heat
transferable dusty fluid flow past between two parallel Riga plates. The
lower plate is kept fixed while the upper plate keeps moving with a
constant velocity. A uniform Lorentz forces induced by Riga plates and a
constant pressure gradient is applied on the fluid. The governing
equations are derived from Navier-Stokes equation, Energy equation.
Boundary layer approximations have been employed. The motion of the dust
particles is governed by Newton's second law. The non-dimensional
equations are solved by using the explicit finite difference method. The
effects of necessary parameters on the velocity and temperature
distributions as well as the shear stress and Nusselt number of clean
fluid particle and dust particles have been discussed in detail.
