Analytical investigation of heat transfer in Couette flow through a porous medium utilizing the Brinkman-Forchheimer-extended Darcy model. (English) Zbl 0914.76084
Summary: We investigate the combined problem of fluid flow and heat transfer in Couette flow through a rigid saturated porous medium. The fluid flow occurs due to a moving wall, and it is described by the Brinkman-Forchheimer-extended Darcy equation. Two heat transfer situations are considered: (A) isoflux-fixed wall and insulated moving wall, and (B) insulated fixed wall and isoflux-moving wall. We obtain analytical solutions for the flow velocity, temperature distribution, and for the Nusselt number.
