Abstract


The objective of the study is to analyze the thermal radiation and Hall Effect on unsteady MHD mixed convective flow of a viscous incompressible fluid past an infinite vertical porous flat plate in the presence of a heat source/sink. The problem is solved numerically by using finite element method for velocity, temperature and concentration field and also the expression for skin friction have been obtained. The numerical results are demonstrated graphically for various values of the parameters including Hartman number, Prandtl number, Grashof number for heat and mass transfer, Schmidt number, Hall parameter, Radiation parameter and the heat source/sink parameter.


Keywords


MHD, mixed convection, vertical porous plate, thermal radiation, mass transfer, heat source/sink.
