Numerical Three-Dimensional Double Diffusion Poiseuille-Rayleigh-Benard Flows in Rectangular Channels
The contribution of this work is to characterize the travelling wave’s appearance and to generalize the behavior of Poiseuille-Rayleigh-Benard (PRB) systems for a broad range of dimensionless parameters, which control the double diffusive mixed convection. The numerical results consist to analyzing the flow regimes of the steady longitudinal thermoconvectives rolls for the case of purely thermal mixed convection and for both thermal and mass diffusion. The passage from an opposed volume forces to cooperating one at fixed Rayleigh (Ra), Reynolds (Re) and Lewis (Le) numbers, affects considerably the birth and the development of the longitudinal rolls R//. The distribution of the heat and mass transfer, presented by the average Nusselt and Sherwood numbers, is also examined.
