1. Introduction

New kinds of fluid were required to reach more efficient performance in new days. Nanofluid was proposed as innovative way to enhance heat transfer. Teamah and Shehata [1] reported the Lorentz forces effect on free convection in trapezoidal enclosure. Hsiao [2] investigated electrical MHD nanofluid flow over a plate. He utilized FDM for simulation. Sheikholeslami and Ganji [3] presented various applications of nanofluid in their review paper. Sheremet et al. [4] simulated the unsteady

LBM to simulate Lorentz force influence on nanofluid temperature distribution. They depicted that temperature gradient reduces with augment of Hartmann number. Kefayati [12] considered second law analysis for nanofluid laminar natural convection in a permeable enclosure. He proved that irreversibilities augment as Rayleigh number enhances. MHD nanofluid free convective hydrothermal analysis in a tilted wavy enclosure was presented by Sheremet et al. [13]. Their results illustrated that change of titled angle causes con-vective heat transfer to enhance. Influence of non-uniform Lorentz forces on nanofluid flow style has been studied by Sheikholeslami Kandelousi [14]. He concluded that improvement in heat transfer reduces with rise of Kelvin forces. Sheik-

holeslami et al. [15] examined about the impact of radiation of nanofluid free convective heat transfer in existence of magnetic field. They showed that rate of heat transfer decreases with augment of Lorentz forces. Malvandi et al. [16] analyzed the fluid flow on a sheet. They presented the thermodynamic optimization of this problem. Several authors investigated about nanofluid heat transfer augmentation [17-33,1].

The purpose of this article was to investigate impact of magnetic source on hydrothermal behavior of nanofluid in a cavity with sinusoidal cold wall. CVFEM is chosen to simulate this paper. Effects of Rayleigh and Hartmann numbers, volume fraction of Fe3O4 on hydrothermal treatment are considered.

3.2. Numerical procedure

Linear interpolation is utilized for approximation of variables in the triangular element which is considered as building block (Fig. 1(b)). Algebretic equations are solved via Gauss-Seidel method. More details exist in reference book [35].

4. Mesh independency and validation

For selecting the mesh size to access mesh independency outputs, different grids are tested. As shown in Table 2, a grid size of 71 x 211 should be chosen. Fig. 3 shows the accuracy of FORTRAN code for nanofluid heat transfer [36]. Table 3 illustrates that our code is validated for magnetohydrodynamic heat transfer [37].

5. Results and discussion

A cavity filled with nanofluid in existence of magnetic source is studied. Cold wall has sinusoidal shape. Various amounts of Hartmann number (Ha = 0-20), Rayleigh number

(Ra — 103, 104 and 105), amplitude of the sinusoidal wall (a = 0.1-0.3) and volume fraction of Fe3O4 (/ — 0 and 0.04) have been considered. Ec and Pr are 10-5 and 6.8, respectively.

Figs. 4-6 depict the impacts of amplitude of the sinusoidal wall, Rayleigh and Hartmann numbers on streamlines and isotherms. At a = 0.1, one main eddy appears. As amplitude of the sinusoidal wall augments, the main eddy turn into two eddies. By applying magnetic field, Lorentz forces generate. This force causes the nanofluid flow to retard. Increasing Lorentz forces causes eddies to stretch vertically. In weak buoyancy forces, the domination mode is conduction. So reducing distance between cold and hot walls, rate of heat transfer augments but opposite behavior can be seen for stronger buoyancy forces. As buoyancy forces enhances, eddies become stronger and isotherms become nonparallel together. So temperature gradient near the right wall enhances. As Lorentz force augments, the velocity reduces and this force makes isotherms to become parallel together.

Figs. 7 and 8 depict the influence of the Fe3O4 volume fraction, amplitude of the sinusoidal wall, Lorentz and buoyancy forces on Nuloc, Nuave. The correlation for Nuave corresponding to active parameters is as follows:

Nuave — -2.85 + 9.12a + 1,33(log(Ra)) - 4.34/ + 1.79 x 10-4Ha - 2.6a(log(Ra)) - 0.13a/ - 1.6 x 10-16aHa + 1.9(log(Ra))/- 1.15 x 10-17(log(Ra))Ha

- 1.18 x 10-15/Ha + 3.5a2 - 7.5 x 10-4(log(Ra))2

- 0.45/2 - 8.9 x 10-6Ha2

As buoyancy forces augment, temperature gradient near the right wall enhances and in turn Nuave enhances with augment of Rayleigh number. Enhancing Lorentz forces leads to reduce Nuave due to domination of conduction mode. Adding Fe3O4 nanoparticle into water makes Nusselt number to enhance. Nuave enhances with rise of a in low Ra but opposite changes occur for high Ra.

6. Conclusions

Ferrofluid heat transfer in a cavity with sinusoidal cold wall is presented under the impact of external magnetic field. CVFEM has been chosen as simulation method. Isotherms and streamlines are depicted for different values of volume fraction of Fe3O4, amplitude of the sinusoidal wall, Rayleigh and Hartmann numbers. Results indicate that impact of adding Fe3O4 is more sensible for lower buoyancy forces. Temperature gradient enhances with rise of amplitude of the sinusoidal wall when buoyancy force is weak. Temperature augments with rise of Lorentz forces but it reduces with augment of volume fraction of Fe3O4 and buoyancy forces.
