Abstract

Thermodynamics aspect of the plane and circular Couette flow with asymmetric wall temperatures for an incompressible fluid with temperature independent viscosity and thermal conductivity were experimentally analyzed. In the analysis, the entropy generation was calculated using the velocity and temperature profiles for a steady state, developed laminar flow. The effects of the pressure gradient and the Brinkman number on the volumetric entropy generation and the irreversibility distribution ratio were determined and graphically displayed for both geometries.
