Dual Solutions for Opposing Mixed Convection in Porous Media
Date of Issue2017
School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The problem of steady mixed convection boundary layer flow on a cooled vertical permeable circular cylinder embedded in a fluid-saturated porous medium is studied. Here, we evaluate the flow and heat transfer characteristics numerically for various values of the governing parameters and demonstrate the existence of dual solutions beyond a critical point.
