Simulation, modelling, wavy disk, film condensation


This work carries out the modelling and simulation for the behavior of hydromagnetic condensate flow along a wavy disk. Mathematical analysis is used to obtain the dimensionless governing equations and boundary conditions, and the cubic spline collocation method is then used to calculate the flow and heat transfer characteristics along the wavy disk. The effects of the important parameters, such as Hartmann numbers, condensation parameters, and amplitude-wavelength ratios, on the flow and heat transfer characteristics are carefully examined. The mathematical analysis and numerical procedure described here can be applied to wavy surface heat transfer and flow problems.
