Abstract


A steady, two-dimensional, Marangoni convection flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting and radiating fluid along a permeable flat plate in the presence of magnetic field and heat generation/absorption is analyzed. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into a set of ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The resultant equations are then solved using Range-Kutta method along with shooting technique. The behavior of velocity and temperature as well as Nusselt number for different values of governing parameters are computed and discussed in detail.

Keywords


Marangoni convection, Boundary layer, Thermal radiation, MHD, Viscous dissipation.
