• SIMULTANEOUS EFECTS OF HALL CURRENT THERMAL DIFFUSION AND CHEMICAL REACTION ON MHD CONVECTION FLOW PAST A VERTICAL PLATE

M. ANIL KUMAR*, N. VENKATESH

Abstract


The objective of this paper is to investigate the combined effects of Hall current, thermal diffusion and chemical reaction effects on MHD free convective flow past a vertical porous plate with heat and mass transfer. Here we considered Darcy resistance into account and constant permeability of the medium numerically and neglecting induced magnetic field in comparison to applied magnetic field. The momentum, energy, and concentration equations derived as coupled second-order, ordinary differential equations and are solved numerically using a highly accurate and thoroughly tested finite element method (FEM). The velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are presented graphically


Keywords
