Application of Constant Proportional Caputo Fractional Derivative to Thermodiffusion Flow of MHD Radiative Maxwell Fluid under Slip Effect over a Moving Flat Surface with Heat and Mass Diffusion

Thermal diffusion is a phenomenon where the concentration gradient or diffusive flux is created due to the temperature gradient. Thermal diffusion is induced because of the higher temperature and uneven distribution of the mixture. Formally, thermal diffusion is called the Soret effect, and it is a crucial factor in a number of natural occurrences like the separation of isotopes technique of purification. In this research paper, Maxwell fluid’s flow in the vicinage of a flat plate is discussed by considering the effect of the thermodiffusion subject to the first-order slip at the boundary with the application of a constant proportional Caputo (CPC) fractional derivative. The effect of heat generation and radiation is also taken into consideration, as well as the effect of a magnetic field of constant magnitude. The generalized heat and mass fluxes are considered, and this generalization of heat and mass fluxes is done by utilizing the CPC fractional derivative. After converting the current model’s governing equations into a dimensionless form, the temperature, concentration, and velocity fields’ analytical solutions are found. By drawing graphs of the temperature, concentration, and velocity fields for the parametric modifications, the results are graphically illustrated. It becomes clear from the results discussion that the outcomes produced by the constant proportional derivative are more decaying than those obtained with the classical differential operator of order one.

Aspects of Non-unique Solutions for Hiemenz Flow Filled with Ternary Hybrid Nanofluid over a Stretching/Shrinking Sheet

This study is carried out to scrutinize the Hiemenz flow for ternary hybrid nanofluid flow across a stretching/shrinking sheet. This study aims to inspect the impacts of variations in the stretching/shrinking parameter and the volume fraction of nanoparticles on key aspects of the ternary hybrid nanofluid flow, specifically the skin friction, Nusselt number (which relates to heat transfer), velocity profiles, and the temperature profiles. The flow equations transform into a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) using a similarity transformation. Subsequently, the system is numerically solved using the MATLAB software’s 4th-order accuracy boundary value problem solver, known as “bvp4c”. Numeric findings reveal that skin friction values exhibit variations based on the magnitude of the stretching/shrinking parameter. Moreover, in the specific context of the flow problem being studied, the heat conduction efficiency of the hybrid (ternary) nanofluid surpasses that of the hybrid nanofluid. The system yields two distinct solutions within a specific shrinking/stretching parameter interval. Through an examination of the temporal stability of the solutions, it was determined that only one remained stable over an extended period. Remember that these current findings hold solely for the combination of copper, alumina, and titania.

Computational Fluid Dynamics for Cavity Natural Heat Convection: Numerical Analysis and Optimization in Greenhouse Application

Natural convection in cavity plays a significant role in energy-related field, including the indoor heat transfer analysis in greenhouse with integrated PV roof. In this study, mathematical model is established for two-dimensional heat transfer analysis in greenhouse air cavity, with numerical simulation through computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Main natural convection impact factors, such as system configuration parameters (tilting angle and PV panel unit number) and fluid thermal–physical properties, are investigated with indoor temperature distribution and streamline comparison by finite-volume method (FVD). Preliminary results show that with rising Rayleigh number (Ra), natural convection is enhanced with growing Nusselt number (Nu). Moreover, panel slope tilting angle (θ) highly determines inside heat transfer subregions in terms of the vertical temperature gradient declines with rising θ, improving the temperature distribution uniformity inside. The solar greenhouse example illustrates that with the increasing numbers of panel group numbers (n), the air temperature gradient differences decrease, improving the temperature distribution uniformity inside, which is preferable to built environment accurate control for greenhouse in the practical engineering. This work can provide modeling method support and reference for natural heat convection applications.

Double-Periodic Soliton Solutions of the (2+1)-Dimensional Ito Equation

In this work, a (2 + 1)-dimensional Ito equation is investigated, which represents the generalization of the bilinear KdV equation. Abundant double-periodic soliton solutions to the (2 + 1)-dimensional Ito equation are presented by the Hirota bilinear form and a mixture of exponentials and trigonometric functions. The dynamic properties are described through some 3D graphics and contour graphics.

Implicit Finite Difference Simulation of Hybrid Nanofluid along a Vertical Thin Cylinder with Sinusoidal Wall Heat Flux under the Effects of Magnetic Field

A numerical analysis of magnetohydrodynamic natural convection along a thin vertical cylinder with a sinusoidal heat flux at the wall immersed in copper (Cu) and aluminum-oxide (Al2O3) hybrid nanofluids has been studied. A 2D vertical thin cylinder shape geometry has been considered with a radius of R. The fluid flow is considered laminar and incompressible with the Prandtl number of Pr = 6.2 and 10% concentration of hybrid nanoparticles. The nondimensional governing equations have been solved numerically by using the implicit finite difference method. An in-house FORTRAN 90 code is used for solving this problem and the code is validated with the available benchmark results. Numerical simulations have been performed for a wide range of governing parameters, Hartmann number from Ha = 0 to Ha = 4, nanoparticles volume fractions  = 0.0 to  = 0.1, and the amplitude of the wall heat flux ε = 0.0–0.3. The findings have been illustrated in terms of streamlines, isotherms, local skin friction coefficients, local Nusselt numbers, velocity, and temperature distributions. The flow field and temperature distribution within the boundary layer are deceased by the effects of the wall heat flux amplitudes. It is also noted that the rate of heat transfer increases with particle volume fraction and the amplitude of the wall heat flux. According to the findings, Nu increases by 24.72% as increases from 0 to 0.1 while ε = 0.3, and 27.66% while ε increases from 0.0 to 0.3 at 5% hybrid nanoparticles. The local skin frictions and Nusselt number diminish with the increment of the Hartman number due to the effects of the Lorenz force. The findings of this study can lead to a better understanding of the fundamental principles regarding the behavior of hybrid nanofluids under complex conditions, such as a vertical thin cylinder with a sinusoidal wall heat flux. Understanding the behavior of hybrid nanofluids in the presence of a magnetic field and a nonuniform wall heat flow can also lead to the development of innovative heat transfer enhancement strategies.

Modelling and Investigation of the Dynamic Behavior of a Penny-Shaped Interface Crack in Piezoelectric Bimaterials

In this section, the dynamic propagation behavior of a penny-shaped interface crack in piezoelectric bimaterials is analyzed. The objective of this paper is to use the boundary conditions of the penny-shaped interface crack to study the dynamic propagation of the crack under the action of load, so as to provide some valuable implications for the fracture mechanics of the piezoelectric bimaterials and simulate the interface crack between piezoelectric bimaterials, it is necessary to establish a suitable model and give appropriate boundary conditions according to the actual situation. The elastic displacement and potential equations are constructed according to the structural characteristics of the circular crack. In the case of a given displacement or stress, the Laplace transform and Hankel transform are used to simplify the problem into an integral equation with unknown functions. According to the boundary conditions, the corresponding unknowns are obtained, and the closed solution is derived. The results show that the fracture toughness of a penny-shaped interface crack in piezoelectric bimaterials is related to the thickness of the material, the impact time, the material characteristics, and the electric field. At the same time, it can be found that different materials have different roles in the crack propagation, so it is very important to study the crack opening displacement (COD) intensity factor of the crack for safety design.
