Abstract

The fundamental characteristics of the two-dimensional cavitating flow of magnetic fluid in a vertical converging-diverging nozzle under a strong nonuniform magnetic field are numerically investigated to realize the further development and high performance of the new type of a two-phase fluid driving system using magnetic fluids. The numerical results demonstrate that effective two-phase magnetic driving force and fluid acceleration are obtained by the practical use of the magnetization of the working fluid.
