The nonlinear momentum and energy equations are solved numerically using finiteelement approximations. We consider two cases of thermal boundary conditions H 1 and T thermal boundary conditions. The velocity, temperature profiles, product of friction factorreynolds number and Nusselt number for H 1 and T thermal boundary conditions are computed for various values of the physical parameters of the HerschelBulkley fluids and aspect ratio of the duct. The present results have been compared with the known solution for Newtonian and powerlaw fluids and are found to be in good agreement. Key Words: Numerical Analysis, NonNewtonian Fluids, Heat Transfer, Rectangular Duct 1. Introduction The fluid flow behavior of nonnewtonian fluid has attracted special interest in recent years due to the wide application of these fluids in the chemical, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, food industries and electronic industries. A large number of fluids that are used extensively in industrial application are nonnewtonian fluids exhibiting a yield stress y, stress that has to be exceeded before the fluid moves. As a result the fluid cannot sustain a velocity gradient unless the magnitude of the local shear stress is higher than this yield stress. Fluids that belong to this category include cement, drilling mud, sludge, granular suspensions, aqueores foams, slurries, paints, plastics, paper pulp and food products. Several studies have appeared, [1 6] studied the fully developed velocity profile and fraction factor Reynolds number product and Nusselt number for Newtonian in a rectangular duct. In early studies for non Newtonian fluid, Schechter [7] applied a variational *Corresponding author. method to obtain the velocity profile and the corresponding friction factor for a powerlaw fluid. Wheeler and Wissler [8] solved the same problem by finite difference method and furthermore proposed a simple friction factorreynolds number correlation for the special case of a square duct. Kozicki et al. [9] presented fairly approximate relationship between friction factor and Reynolds number through rectangular ducts as well as for some other noncircular ducts. More recent studies in the field under discussion are mainly based on numerical approaches. Geo and Hartnett [10] used finite difference method to obtain friction factorreynolds number product and velocity profile for powerlaw fluid through rectangular duct. On the other hand Seppo Serjala [11, 12] solved the same problem by using finiteelement method. The flow of HerschelBulkley fluids has been considered for other geometries by Bettra and Eissa [13] in entrance region through parallel plate channels. Eissa [14] studied laminar heat transfer for thermally developing flow of HerschelBulkley fluid through special cases of square ducts by using finite difference method. SayedAhmed and Elyazal [15,16] studied the flow and
2 100 M. E. SayedAhmed et al. heat transfer of RobertsonStiff fluids in rectangular duct using finitedifference method. In the present study, we investigate the problem of laminar fully developed flow of HerschelBulkley fluids through rectangular duct. The nonlinear momentum equation is solved iteratively using a finiteelement method to obtain the velocity profile and the value of the friction factorreynolds number product. The energy equation is solved numerically to obtain the temperature profile and Nusselt number for two cases of thermal boundary conditions H 1 (axially uniform heat flux and peripherally uniform temperature) and T (axially and peripherally uniform temperature). Computations are given over wide range of duct aspect ratios and flow behavior index and yield stress of HerschelBulkley fluids. 2. Problem Formulation We consider a steady, fully developed, laminar, isothermal flow of incompressible and purely viscous nonnewtonian in a rectangular duct. The duct configuration and coordinate system are shown in Figure 1. For the previous assumptions, the momentum and energy equations reduced to (1) wall). Since the flow is hydro dynamically and thermally fully developed flow then the term T/ z in the energy equation (2) can be represented as [12] for case (1): H 1 thermal boundary condition, and as (4) (5) for case (2): T thermal boundary condition The fraction factor f and Reynolds number Re for HerschelBulkley fluids are given by The average velocity w av is given by (6) (7) Now it is convenient to write the above equations in the nondimensional form. The relevant dimensionless quantities are defined by (2) In which w is the velocity component in zdirection and the apparent viscosity for HerschelBulkley fluids is described by (8) Substitution these quantities in equation (8) into (3) The boundary condition for the velocity is no slip boundary condition (i.e. the velocity at the walls of a rectangular duct equals zero). The boundary conditions for the temperature is T = T w (the temperature at the Figure 1. Configuration and coordinate system for a rectangular duct.
3 Laminar Flow and Heat Transfer of HerschelBulkley Fluids in a Rectangular Duct; FiniteElement Analysis 101 equations (1) and (3), and by making use of the relation (6) and (7). The dimensionless equation of motion is reduced to where dimensionless average velocity W av can be written as and the dimensionless viscosity is reduced to (9) The Nusselt number Nu is defined by (16) (17) (10) where h is the average heat transfer coefficient and given by The dimensionless energy equations are reduced to for case (1): H 1 thermal boundary condition and case (2): T thermal boundary condition (11) (12) (18) The Nusselt number for the two cases thermal boundary condition is given by (19) where m is the bulk mean temperature and evaluated by the form Noting that for symmetry reasons only a quarter of the flow domain has to be considered (0 X 0.5, 0 Y 0.5 ), the velocity boundary conditions can be written as 3. Numerical Solution (20) (13) and the temperature boundary conditions can be written as (14) The product of friction factor and Reynolds number reduce into the dimensionless form (15) The finiteelement method is used to approximate the solution of partial differential equations (9), (11) and (12) with boundary conditions (13) and (14). We will divided the domain into finite rectangular elements, which is a suitable element for the domain as shown in Figure 2 with sides X and Y. Suppose that W and can be approximated by the expression (21) where j is a linear interpolation function of the rectangular element. Multiply equation (9), (11) and (12) by a test function v and integrate over the element domain e. The variational form becomes
4 102 M. E. SayedAhmed et al. where m is the average viscosity m over the element and q is the average dimensionless temperature q over the element from the last iteration. The linear interpolation functions for rectangular duct with both sides DX and DY are given by [17] (28) Figure 2. The domain is divided into rectangular elements with four nodes. (22) Using linear interpolation functions in equations (28) into equations (25), (26) and (27) and evaluate the integrals then substituting the boundary conditions to get a system of linear equations on Wj and qj. For non linear equation (25) an iterative procedure is used to obtain the unknown Wj. The initial value of viscosity is assumed to be the same at each mesh node (m = 1.0 for Newtonian fluid) to obtain the velocity at each node of the elements. Making use the value of the velocity that are obtain to get the new viscosity by (23) (29) (24) Substituting equation (21) for W, q and yi for v into the variational form (22)(24), we obtain (25) The process is repeated until the criteria of conver5 old gence W(i,newj)  W(i,oldj) 105 and m new are (i, j)  m (i, j) 10 satisfied. The convergence has been achieved by taking elements. The average velocity Wm is evaluated by Simpson rule formula of the double integrals (26) (30) (27) For case (1): H1 thermal boundary condition, equation (26) is solved to obtain the temperature qj. For case (2): T thermal boundary conditions, non linear equation (27) an iterative procedure is used to obtain the unknown qj. We assume initial value of temperature the

Making use the new value of the temperature that are obtain to get the new value of the bulk mean temperature. The process is repeated un5 old til the criteria of convergence q new are (i, j)  q (i, j) 10 satisfied. The convergence has been achieved by taking elements. 103 The velocity profile and friction factor fre are obtained for different values of (n = 1.5, 1.2, 1.0, 0.8, 0.5), (td = 0.0, 0.01, 0.03) and (a = 1.0, 0.5, 0.2). Figures 3a3c, 4a4c and 5a5c show the distribution of velocity W along the centerline of the crosssection, which is parallel to the major side of the duct, for various values of n, td and for a = 1.0, 0.5, 0.2 respectively. The study of Figures (35) shows that the value of the velocity W increases from zero at the wall (no slip condition) to the maximum value at the mid point (0.5, 0.5a) for all values of a, n and td. The maximum value of the velocity increases as the n increases for all values of td and a as a result of decrease in the apparent viscosity of the nonnewtonian fluid and, therefore, increasing the average velocity. Also the value of the velocity decreases with increasing in td for all values of n and a due to increasing the plug core formation, Figure 3. The distribution of velocity W along the centerline of the crosssection, which is parallel to the major side of the duct for a = 1.0. Figure 4.

The distribution of velocity W along the centerline of the crosssection, which is parallel to the major side of the duct for a = 0.2. which no flow occurs through the region, so the net flow region decreasing. The velocity gradient at the wall increases as n increases for all values of td and a. We can also observe that the velocity profile becomes flatter with a decrease in the value of the flow behavior index n (shear thinning n < 1.0) and a due to decreasing in apparent viscosity of the nonnewtonian fluid. It is found also the velocity profile becomes increasingly flattened with increasing of the value of td this phenomenon is due to the formulation of the plug core of the yield nonnewtonian fluids along the centerline of the duct. The variation of fre with flow behavior index n is shown in Figures (6a6c) for a = 1.0, 0.5, 0.2 respec tively. It has been found that the value of fre increases with increasing value of n due to the increasing of the viscosity of HerschelBulkley fluid with the flow index n for all values of td and a. It can found also the increasing of the value of td increases the value of fre for all values of n and a. This phenomenon is explained as follows an increasing in the value of the yield stress td increases the plug core formation, which no flow occurs through this region and net flow region decreasing. The decreasing in the value of a increases the value of fre for all values of n and td as a result of decreasing the cross section area. Nusselt number are obtained for different values of (n = 1.5, 1.2, 1.0, 0.8, 0.5), (td = 0.0, 0.01, 0.03) and (a = 1.0, 0.5, 0.2). Figures 7a7c and 8a8c show the variation of Nusselt number for case (1): H1 thermal boundary

Examination of Figures 7a7c and 8a8c shows that the value of Nu for case (1) and case (2) thermal boundary conditions increases as the flow behavior index n decreases for all values of td and a. The increase of td increases Nu for case (1) and case (2) thermal boundary conditions for all values of n and a. This phenomenon is explained as follows an increasing in the value of the yield stress td increases the plug core formation, which no flow occurs through this region and net flow region decreasing which decreases bulk mean temperature. The decreasing in the value of a increases the value of Nu for case (1) and case (2) thermal boundary conditions for all values of n and td as a result of decreasing the cross section area, which decreases bulk mean temperature. It also found that, the values of Nu for H1 thermal boundary conditions greater than the values of Nu for T thermal boundary conditions. Tables 13 show the comparison of the present results of fre and Nu for H1 and T thermal boundary condition with the previous work (Shah and London [5] and Syrjala [11,12]) for a = 1.0,0.5,0.2, n = 1.2, 1.0, 0.5, and td = 0.0 (powerlaw fluid). The present results are found to be in good agreement with the previous work. Nomenclature Dh hydraulic diameter (4 cross area/perimeter)
