Abstract

Swirl flow heat exchangers are commonly used in industrial processes such as power generation, chemical processing, and refrigeration. They can be used for both heating and cooling applications and can be designed to handle a wide range of fluid flow rates and temperatures. This study investigated the influence of PST (prescribed surface temperature) and PHF (prescribed heat flux) heating conditions on the swirl flow of Al+Mg+TiO2 ternary hybrid water-ethylene glycol (50/50) based nanofluid with a heated rotating cone. The governing ordinary differential equations were derived from the partial differential equations using the proper similarity transformations. The problem was solved using the Shifted Legendre Collocation Method (SLCM), which is a powerful numerical method. The results showed that the PST heating conditions had a significant impact on the flow and heat transfer characteristics of the ternary hybrid nanofluid. Under PHF heating conditions, the swirl velocity distribution was leading to a noteworthy influence. The use of the Al+Mg+TiO2 ternary hybrid water-ethylene glycol based nanofluid resulted in a significant enhancement in the convective heat transfer coefficient. The SLCM method provided accurate and efficient numerical solutions for the problem, demonstrating its suitability for simulating complex fluid flow and heat transfer problems.
