What is it about?

A two-dimensional numerical study is carried out for the flow and heat transfer past two circular cylinders in tandem arrangement and confined inside a vertical channel The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of buoyancy and the confinement effect on the flow and heat transfer characteristics of the cylinder array by means of performing numerical simulations.

Why is it important?

The results demonstrate how the buoyancy, spacing ratio and wall confinement affect the wake stru ture and vortex dynamics.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as the first author was my first Ph.D. student to graduate under my supervision.
