Variational solution of heat convection in the channel flow with the help of GPDP

  • P. Singh

The Governing Principle of Dissipative Processes is applied to study the temperature distribution in the fluid flow inside two parallel semi-infinite plates. It is found that the flux representation of the principle yields exactly the same result as obtained with the help of Lagrangian thermodynamics ofBiot. The results obtained in the present analysis compare well with the exact ones.
