Abstract

Numerical solutions are presented for steady two-dimensional symmetric flow past a parabolic cylinder embedded in porous media. For this study, the full Navier-Stokes equations (combined with the Brinkman-Forchheimer-extended Darcy model) and energy equation in parabolic coordinates were solved. A second order accurate finite difference scheme on a non-uniform grid was used. A wide range of Reynolds number (Re) is studied for different values of Prandtl number (Pr). It is found that the pressure, skin friction and Nusselt number decreases as the Darcy number (Da) decreases and/or the Inertia parameter (Λ) increases.
