Abstract :

This study is based on numerical investigation into entropy generation in a channel flow of nanofluids with convective heating. Channel flow was for water based nanofluids containing Copper (Cu) and Alumina (Al2O3) as nanoparticles. Both first and second laws of thermodynamics also Newton Law of Cooling are utilized to analyze the model problem in horizontal geometric with no effect of gravitation flow in a channel flow. By use of semi discretization finite difference method together with Runge-Kutta Fehlberg, numerical investigation was conducted. Graphical results on the properties of parameter variation on velocity, temperature and entropy generation rate are presented and discussed with effects of increasing Reynolds number, Eckert number, Nanoparticles Volume Fraction, Prandtl number and Pressure Gradient.
