024166 ABRAR M N, HAQ R U, AWAIS M, RASHID I (Mathematics Dep, Capital Univ of Science and Technology, Islamabad- 44000, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) : Entropy analysis in a cilia transport of nanofluid under the influence of magnetic field. Nucl Eng Tech 2017, 49(8), 1680- 88.
In this study, analysis is performed on entropy generation during cilia transport of water based titanium dioxide nanoparticles in the presence of viscous dissipation. Moreover, thermal heat flux is considered at the surface of a channel with ciliated walls. Mathematical formulation is constructed in the form of nonlinear partial differential equations. Making use of suitable variables, the set of partial differential equations is reduced to coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Closed form exact solutions are obtained for velocity, temperature, and pressure gradient. Graphical illustrations for emerging flow parameters, such as Hartmann number (Ha), Brinkmann number (Br), radiation parameter (Rn), and flow rate, have been prepared in order to capture the physical behavior of these parameters. The main goal(i.e., the minimizing of entropy generation) of the second law of thermodynamics can be achieved by decreasing the magnitude of Br, Ha and A parameters.
