In this article, using the standard reductive perturbation technique (RPT) to the basic governing equations for plasma comprising stationary ions, cold electrons and hot electrons abiding by vortex-like distribution, nonplanar Schamel Burger (NSB) equations is derived. In order to study the propagating properties of Electron acoustic (EA), progressive wave solution is obtained by employing the weighted residual method (WRM). Most of the observations of the EA wave are limited to the plasma environment where the effects of viscosity, collisions, ion streaming velocity are totally neglected. In our present observation, propagation of EA waves in a viscous plasma is described considering a weak damping (by adding a Burgers term) due to the inner particle collision and viscosity. Special attention has been given to study the impact of the other physical parameters in wave propagation in the framework of the Schamel Burgers medium.
The objective of this work is to discuss the turbulent air hydro-thermal phenomena over a rectangular microchannel with different types of baffle (rectangular, triangular, and trapezoidal) mounted on both the walls of the microchannel. The finite volume method with the second order upwind scheme has been utilized to discretize the governing equations and to study the turbulent airflow characteristics; the SST k-ꞷ turbulence model has been adopted. For nine different cases, the different characteristics of fluid flow phenomena and thermal behaviour with the variations in the Reynolds number ranging from [5,000-25,000] and for three different values of inter baffle spacing have been studied in this manuscript. Due to the presence of baffle, it is revealed that the vortex arises on the upper wall and the thermal phenomena enhances with the decrease in inter baffle spacing.
