• RADIATION AND CHEMICAL REACTION EFFECTS ON MHD MIXED CONVECTIVE FLOW OF A VERTICAL SURFACE WITH OHMIC HEATING AND VISCOUS DISSIPATION

V. NAGARAJU, K. HEMALATHA

Abstract


We consider the radiation and chemical reaction effects on MHD mixed convective heat and mass transfer flow past a vertical surface under the influence of Ohmic and viscous dissipation. The governing system of partial differential equations is transformed to dimensionless equations using dimensionless variables. The dimensionless equations are then solved analytically using perturbation technique. The various parameters entering into the problem on the dimensionless velocity, temperature and concentration fields within the boundary layer are discussed and the skin-friction coefficient, the Nusselt number and Sherwood number are presented numerically in tabular form also explained qualitatively.


Keywords
