TL;DR: In this article, the analysis of the second law of thermodynamics applied to an electrically conducting incompressible nanofluid fluid flowing over a porous rotating disk in the presence of an externally applied uniform vertical magnetic field is considered.
TL;DR: In this article, the role of magnetic forces on ferrofluid second law treatment via innovative computational method has been reported, and the non-Darcy model has been involved to estimate behavior of porous media.
TL;DR: The presentation proceeds from the derivation of the Gouy-Stodola theorem, the basis for entropy generation minimization in the conceptual design of heat transfer equipment, to suggest the minimum irreversibility design of one-dimensional insulations such as the main counterflow heat exchanger of a helium liquefaction plant.
Abstract: This review is devoted to the introduction of second-law analysis in heat transfer and entropy generation minimization in thermal design. The presentation proceeds from the derivation of the Gouy-Stodola theorem, the basis for entropy generation minimization in the conceptual design of heat transfer equipment. Appropriate analytical tools, such as the entropy generation number, are devised for the task of estimating the destruction of available work in the processes involving heat transfer. However, the entropy generation number concept is considerably more general, since it can be used to quantitatively describe the degree of irreversibility of engineering components and processes which do not draw their irreversibility solely from heat transfer. The examples considered in this article range from the irreversibility associated with some of the most fundamental convective heat transfer processes to the minimum irreversibility design of one-dimensional insulations such as the main counterflow heat exchanger of a helium liquefaction plant.
TL;DR: In this article, the entropy generation in rectangular cavities with the same area but different aspect ratios is numerically investigated and the variation of the total entropy generation and average Bejan number for the whole cavity volume at different aspects ratios for different values of the Rayleigh number and irreversibility distribution ratio are also evaluated.
TL;DR: In this paper, the effects of magnetic interaction number, slip factor and relative temperature difference on velocity and temperature profiles as well as entropy generation in magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of a fluid with variable properties over a rotating disk are investigated using numerical methods.
