Simulation des Instabilites Thermoconvectives de Fluides Complexes par des Approches Multi-Echelles

Abstract : In this research work we are looking for two main physical and numerical purposes. The physical problem is to find the solution of Rayleigh Bénard convection for several conditions dependent on fluid thermo-physical properties such as temperature, viscosity and initial and boundary conditions. Continuing previous research works in this study we have provided the results of Rayleigh Bénard convection for Newtonian, Power-law and viscoplastic fluids (Bingham, Herschel-Bulkley and Casson) and for steady state and transient conditions. We also solve this problem for Nano and soft glassy materials. In some cases the results are interesting not only as a part of the Rayleigh Bénard convection analysis but also on a larger scale as a part of the heat transfer and mechanical fluid analysis such as viscoplastic and soft glassy material studies. Numerically, it was interesting to develop Proper Generalized Decomposition (PGD) method for solving transient coupled non-linear models, in particular the one related to the Rayleigh–Bénard flow. This model also was used to solve RBC problem parametrically by adding some physical properties as extra coordinates. For soft glassy material we used PGD to connect micro and macro equations together.
