Numerical study of asymmetric and axisymmetric thermal jet with entropy generation concept
In the current investigation, numerical study of a thermal jet of asymmetric (rectangular and elliptical) and axisymmetric (circular) geometry was investigated with variable density to verify the impact of the ratio of density and geometry on the generation of entropy. The central jet was brought to different temperatures (194, 293 and 2110 K) to obtain density ratios (0.66, 1 and 7.2) identical to a mixture jet ((Air-CO2), (Air-Air) and (Air-He)), respectively. Solving the three-dimensional numerical resolution of the Navier Stocks for turbulent flow permanent enclosed on the turbulence model K-εstandard was made. The results acquired are compared with that carried out in previous experimental studies, where it was concluded that, the axisymmetric (circular) geometry increases the entropy generation.
