Abstract

The entropy generation due to heat transfer and fluid friction in mixed convective peristaltic flow of methanol-Al2O3 nano fluid is examined. Maxwell’s thermal conductivity model is used in analysis. Velocity and temperature profiles are utilized in the computation of the entropy generation number. The effects of involved physical parameters on velocity, temperature, entropy generation number, and Bejan number are discussed and explained graphically. View Full-Text
