NABAJYOTI DUTTA*, B. R. SHARMA

Abstract


In this research paper we have investigated the chemical reaction and thermal radiation effects on an unsteady MHD flow through porous medium past an infinite vertical plate in the presence of soret effects. The governing   dimensionless coupled linear partial differential equations are solved numerically using finite difference method (FDM) by developing suitable codes in MATLAB software. The fluid velocity, temperature and species concentration profiles have been drawn for time and various flow parameters such as Radiation parameter ( ), chemical reaction parameter ( ) and Soret number ( ) and results are discussed. Also the numerical values of the velocity, temperature and concentration have been tabulated.
