Influence of Coil Inclined around Y Axis on Thermomagnetic Convection of Air in a Porous Cubic Enclosure under Zerogravity
Thermomagnetic convection of air in a porous cubic enclosure with a electric coil inclined around the Y axis is numerically investigated under zerogravity environment. The porous cubic enclosure is heated isothermally from left-hand side vertical wall and cooled isothermally from opposing wall while the other four walls are thermally insulated. The governing equations in primitive variables are discretized by the finite-volume method and solved by the SIMPLE algorithm. The results show that the overall heat transfer is enhanced gradually with the increase of magnetic force number and Darcy number. The resulted convection is symmetrical in terms of the angle at yeuler =0 when the range of inclination angle is from -90 to 90.
