The aim of this paper is to investigate the motions of the airflow and particles induced by a moving body in a cleanroom and the effect of enhancing heat transfer rate by a moving block in a channel flow. These variations of the flow, thermal and concentration fields induced by the interaction between flowing fluid and a moving body become time-dependent and belong to a class of the moving boundary problems. In this study, a Galerkin finite element formulation with an arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) kinematic description method is adopted. At first, the variations of airflow induced by a moving AGV in a cleanroom are investigated. The effect of the wafer cassettes’ position is also examined. In addition, the effects of a moving operator and curtain on airflow and particles in a cleanroom are studied. Finally, the effect of moving distance of a moving block on heat transfer in a channel flow is studied. Based upon the above procedures, the results show that the body may press the fluid before the body, and the fluid will simultaneously replenish the vacant space induced by the movement of the body. These phenomena are apparently different from those of regarding the moving body as stationary one in the flowing fluid. From a view point of removing the particles, the relatively smaller moving velocity of the operator or AGV and the relatively larger velocity of the inlet airflow are expected. The curtain can usually protect the operator from the hazardous gases. However, the effect of the position of the wafer cassettes can be neglected. The boundary layer on the heated surface is destroyed before the moving block and reforms behind the moving block in a channel. The major heat transfer enhancement mechanisms are the reformation of boundary layer and the induced cold fluid flowing toward the heated surface. Besides, the heat transfer rate of the heated surface increases proportionally to the increment of the block moving distance.
