Computational fluid dynamics analysis of the gas dryer operating with the air outlet totally opened allowed to verify that advection and buoyancy forces direct the flow to the top of the chamber, leaving areas of limited mass and heat transfer in the lower region (Figure 2B).
The impact of buoyancy forces on the thermal behavior of the hypothetical nacelle has been assessed by considering the required cooling capacity and the average temperature within the nacelle.
In other words, the vehicle could not move in the vertical direction even if the buoyancy force from the water acted on the vehicle.
(2013) on a full scale laboratory setup of an operating room showed strong inward contraction of supply air jets indicating entrainment of the surrounding air into the sterile zone and they attributed this behavior to the buoyancy forces on the downward supply air jets caused by the temperature difference between the supply air and surrounding room temperature.
The Froude number modeling is often used as the scaling technique in fire situations where the Reynolds number is sufficiently large, turbulent conditions prevail, and buoyancy forces are dominant.
Therefore, the convection flow due to buoyancy force is mostly controlled on whole flow domain.
In the molten pool, buoyancy force (body force) can be expressed as in (11) by using the Boussinesq approximation, where only the effect of temperature difference is considered:
The trainers discussed that water entry simulations with life jacket were influenced by the buoyancy force of the life jacket.
This causes overall rising motion of the active fluid driven mainly by buoyancy forces, resulting in a flow with almost constant width.
Subject to dynamic change of boundary temperature, the induced buoyancy force can be meaningful.
Benjamin Jordan, Morris' colleague said they calculated the buoyancy force using the ark's dimensions and the water density.
[27] with the inclusion of the combined effects of buoyancy force and convective heating.
On the other hand, applying even an otherwise insignificant buoyancy force to a heavy object keeps the body alive, which causes small vibrations in most rigid body solvers and makes the problem visible.
The [x.sup.*]-axis is oriented in the direction of the buoyancy force and [y.sup.*]-axis is taken perpendicular to the plane of the plate.
Meanwhile, we observed that the presence of buoyancy force, Ra, promoted the onset of convection.
