Abstract
The steady two-dimensional free convection flow of a Walter’s fluid (Model B’) in a vertical double passage wavy channel has been investigated analytically in the presence of heat source. The channel is divided into two passages by means of thin, perfectly conductive plane baffle and each stream will have its own pressure gradient and hence the velocity will be individual in streams. The governing equations of the fluid and the heat transfer have been solved subject to the relevant boundary conditions by assuming that the solution consists of two parts; a mean part and disturbance or perturbed part. To obtain the perturbed part of the solution, the long wave approximation has been used and to solve the mean part, well known approximation used by Ostrach has been utilized. Numerical results are presented graphically for the distribution of velocity and temperature fields for varying physical parameters such as baffle position, Grashof number, wall temperature ratio, viscoelastic parameter and product of non-dimensional wave number and space co-ordinate at different positions of the baffle. The relevant flow and heat transfer characteristics namely, skin friction and the rate of heat transfer at both the walls has been discussed in detail. Keywords: vertical wavy channel; baffle; double passage; heat source. 1. Introduction The corrugated wall channel is one of the several devices employed for enhancing the heat transfer efficiency of industrial transport processes. It is necessary to study the heat transfer from irregular surfaces because irregular surfaces are often present in many applications. Mixed convection from wavy surfaces can be used for transferring heat in several heat transfer devices, such as flat-plate solar collectors and flat-plate condensers in refrigerators. The presence of roughness elements disturbs the flow past surfaces and alerts the heat transfer rate. Viscous flow in wavy channels was first treated analytically by Burns and Parks (1962). The solution was obtained by expressing the stream function in a Fourier series under the assumption of Stokes flow. Vajravelu (1980) studied the flow and heat transfer effects accounting for the convection contributions by a perturbation method using the long-wave approximation, where the solution consist of a mean part and perturbed part. Yao (1983) proposed a simple transformation to study the natural convection heat transfer from isothermal vertical surfaces, such as sinusoidal surfaces, in Newtonian fluids. Chiu and Chou (1994) studied the transient and steady natural convection along a vertical wavy surface in micropolar fluids. They have found that increasing the micropolar parameter results in decreasing the heat transfer rate. Rees and Pop (1994) studied the free convection flow along a vertical wavy surface with constant wall temperature. Rees and Pop (1995) also studied the natural convection flow along a vertical wavy surface with uniform wall flux. Wang and Vanka (1995) determined the rates of heat transfer for a flow through a periodic array of wavy passage. They observed that for the steady-flow regime, the average Nusselt numbers for the wavy-wall channel were only slightly larger than those for a parallel-plate channel. However, in the transitional-flow regime, the enhancement of heat transfer was by a factor of approximately 2.5. Friction factors for the wavy channel were about twice those for the parallel-plate channel in the steady-flow region, and remained almost constant in the transitional regime. Although some studies for steady and unsteady flows have been reported, example, Blancher et. al. (1998), Selvarajna et. al. (1998), Greiner et. al. (1991), little knowledge is available on the flow in these wavy channels.

The analyses of the flow properties of non-Newtonian fluids are very important in the fields of fluid dynamics because of their technological application. Mechanics of non-Newtonian fluids present challenges to engineers, physicists and mathematicians. Due to the complex stress-strain relationships of non-Newtonian fluids, not many investigators have studied the flow behavior of the fluids in various flow fields. Hot rolling, extrusion of plastics, flow in journal bearings, lubrication, and flow in a shock absorber are some typical examples to name just a few (Bőhme, 1981; Huilgol et. al., 1997). Non-Newtonian fluids are of increasing importance in modern technology due to its growing use in many activities, such as molten plastic, paints, drilling, and petroleum and polymer solutions. The Walters fluid is one of such fluids. The most commonly used technique for internal cooling enhancement is the placement of periodic ribs. Ribs are generally mounted on the heat transfer between the surfaces, which disturb the boundary layer growth and enhance the heat transfer between the surface and the fluid. In addition to ribs and impingement, a third common internal cooling enhancement technique is the placement of internal flow swirls, tape twisters, or baffles. The convective heat transfer in a vertical channel could be enhanced by using special inserts which can be specially designed to increase the included angle between the velocity vector and the temperature gradient vector rather than to promote turbulence. This increases the rate of heat transfer without a considerable drop in the pressure (Guo et. al., 1998).A plane baffle may be used as an insert to enhance the rate of heat transfer in the channel. A thin and perfectly conductive baffle is used so as to avoid a considerable increase in the transverse thermal resistance into the channel. Cheng et al. (1989) studied analytically heat transfer aspects of a laminar fully developed forced-convection within an asymmetrically heated horizontal double-passage channel and concluded that the thermal characteristics of fully developed flow could be significantly affected by the position of the baffle, the pressure gradient ratio and the thermal boundary conditions. Similar mixed convection problem in a vertical double-passage channel has been investigated analytically by Salah El-Din (1994). His results showed that the presence of the baffle may lead to a higher value of Nusselt number according to the baffle position and the value of Gr Re . Dutta and Hossain (2005) reported experimental results of the enhancement of heat transfer with inclined solid and perforated baffles. In that study, the effects of baffle size, position were studied for internal cooling heat transfer augmentation. Chen and Chen (1998) experimental results showed that for small baffle widths, the local heat transfer coefficient decreases with an increase in the baffle wall gap. For large baffle widths, there is an optimum distance between the baffle and the solid wall which give rise to a higher heat transfer coefficient. More over recently Chang and Shiau (2005) studied numerically the effects of horizontal baffle on the heat transfer characteristics of pulsating opposing mixed convection in a vertical channel. They found that the flow pulsation with a baffle gives the optimal heat transfer. Also with large Reynolds number, the inlet flow pulsation dominates the velocity field in the channel. The purpose of the present study focuses attention on the fully developed free convection flow of a Walter’s fluid (Model B’) in a vertical wavy double-passage channel in the presence of heat source. The buoyancy force, temperature ratio, heat source/sink, λ x and viscoelastic parameter at different baffle positions are all considered so as to extensively investigate their distinct influence on the velocity, temperature, skin friction and rate of heat transfer. 2. Mathematical formulation Case 1: Free convection of Walter’s fluid in a vertical channel with baffle Consider a steady two dimensional laminar free convection Walter’s fluid flow in an open-ended vertical channel with one wavy wall and another flat wall as shown in Fig. 1. The channel is divided into two passages by means of a perfectly conducting thin baffle, for which the transverse thermal resistance can be neglected (Cheng et al., 1989 and Salah El Din, 1994, 2002). The X axis is taken upwards and parallel to the flat wall, while the Y-axis is taken perpendicular to it in such a way that the wavy wall is represented by Y = ε ∗ cos ( kX ) and the flat wall by Y = d . The wavy and flat walls are maintained at a constant temperature Tw and T1 , respectively. The following assumptions are made a. All the fluid properties except the density in the buoyancy force are constant. b. The dissipative effects and the work of deformation are neglected in the energy equation. c. The wavelength of the wavy wall is large compared with the width of the channel. d. For fully developed flow, it is assumed that the transverse velocity and temperature gradient in the axial direction are zero. e. The volumetric heat source/sink term in the energy is constant. f. Boussinesq approximation is assumed, i.e., ρ = ρ s (1 − β (T − Ts ) )
