• MHD BOUNDARY LAYER SLIP FLOW AND HEAT TRANSFER OVER A POROUS FLAT PLATE EMBEDDED IN A POROUS MEDIUM

Abstract


A mathematical model is presented for analyzing the steady magneto- hydrodynamic (MHD) boundary layer forced convective flow and heat transfer of an electrically conducting fluid past a porous plate embedded in a porous medium with slip conditions at the boundary. The governing system of partial differential equations is first transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations by introducing an appropriate similarity transformation, which is then solved numerically using a finite difference method. Velocity and temperature profiles are shown graphically for different values of parameters involved and discussed in detail. In the presence of magnetic field, both fluid velocity and temperature increase with increasing suction and decrease for increasing blowing. Results indicate that temperature decrease with thermal slip parameter. On the other hand for increasing Prandtl Number, thermal boundary layer thickness decreases rapidly.
