• EFFECT OF HEAT SOURCES ON NON-DARCY CONVECTIVE HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER FLOW IN A VERTICAL CHANNEL

C. SULOCHANA, G. N. RAMAKRISHNA*

Abstract


An attempt has been made to investigate the chemical reaction effects on Non-Darcy convective heat and Mass transfer flow of a viscous fluid in a vertical channel with heat generating sources. The governing equations of flow, heat and mass transfer have been solved by using Galerkin finite element analysis with Quadratic Polynomial approximations. The velocity, temperature, concentration, shear stress and rate of Heat and Mass transfer are evaluated numerically for different variations of parameter. It is found that the inclusion of inertia effects is to reduce the velocity and increase the temperature and concentration in the flow region. The velocity, temperature and concentration experience an enhancement with increase in the strength of the heat generating source and reduce with that of heat absorption.
