• THERMAL DIFFUSION EFFECT OF FREE CONVECTION MASS TRANSFER FLOW PAST A UNIFORMLY ACCELERATED POROUS PLATE WITH HEAT SINK

Sanjib Sengupta*

Abstract


This paper deals with the combined effect of thermal diffusion and heat absorption on the free convection mass transfer flow of a viscous incompressible fluid past a continuously moving infinite porous plate. Closed form of solution for the velocity field, the temperature field and the concentration field are obtained and discussed graphically for various values of the physical parameters present. In addition, expressions for the viscous drag, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are also derived and finally discussed with the help of tables and graphs.

Keywords


Free convection, Mass transfer, Heat Sink, Thermal diffusion.
