Abstract

A numerical study is performed to investigate the effect of a non - uniform magnetic field from a current carrying wire on the ferrofluid flow. The analysis is carried out for a semi circular annulus with three different locations of wire relative to it, by solving coupled set of flow field equations, energy equations and the Maxwell’s magnetostatics equations. Results from the present study offers better insight about the ferrofluid behaviour and heat transfer mechanism. It also explains the dependency of flow distribution on the location of the electric wire and the magnitude of current flowing through it.
