Heat Transfer Analysis of MHD Viscous Fluid in A Ciliated Tube with
This investigation aims to explain the study of heat transfer and
entropy generation of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) viscous fluid flowing
through a ciliated tube. Heat transfer study has massive importance in
various biomedical and biological industry problems. The metachronal
wave propagation is the leading cause behind this viscous creeping flow.
A low Reynolds number is used as the inertial forces are weaker than
viscous forces, and also creeping flow limitations are fulfilled. For
the cilia movement, a very large wavelength of a metachronal wave is
taken into account. Entropy generation is used to examine the heat
transfer through the flow. Exact mathematical solutions are calculated
and analyzed with the help of graphs. Streamlines are also plotted.
