K. RAJESHWAR REDDY*, M. CHENNA KRISHNA REDDY

Abstract


Numerical investigation is carried out for analyzing the heat and mass transfer in radiative magneto hydrodynamics fluid flow over a permeable vertical plate in the presence of the heat source. The governing systems of partial differential equations are transformed to dimensionless equations using dimensionless variables. The dimensionless equations are solved numerically by using finite element method. With the help of graphs, the effects of the various important parameters entering into the problem on the dimensionless velocity, dimensionless temperature and dimensionless concentration fields within the boundary layer are discussed. Numerical values of friction factor, local Nusselt and Sherwood numbers are tabulated.


Keywords
