• RADIATION EFFECT ON MHD FREE CONVECTIVE FLOW PAST A VERTICAL POROUS PLATE

V. SRI HARI BABU*, K. JAYARAMI REDDY

Abstract


An unsteady MHD free convective flow past a vertical porous plate in the presence of radiation has been considered. The fluid is considered to be a gray, absorbing emitting but non – scattering medium and the Rossel and approximation is used to describe the radiative heat flux in the energy equation. The dimensionless governing coupled, nonlinear boundary layer partial differential equations are solved by an efficient finite element method. A parametric study of the physical parameters involved in the problem is considered and a representative set of numerical results is illustrated graphically.


Keywords


Radiation, free convective, vertical plate, MHD, skin-friction.
