Abstract

Detailed three-dimensional calculations are made to study the generation of secondary flows in conducting- and insulating-sidewall diagonal channels. The secondary flows are found to diminish the velocity overshoots, to promote flow and momentum mixing, and to introduce flow asymmetry. The secondary flows also introduce asymmetry in the peripheral variations of skin friction and heat flux on the cathode, anode, and sidewalls.
