Dr. R. SIVA GOPAL*, Prof. R. SIVA PRASAD

Abstract


We make an investigation of the convective heat and mass transfer flow of a micropolar fluid in a rectangular duct with non liner density temperature. The equations governing the flow of heat and mass transfer are non linear coupled equations. It is not possible to find closed form solutions; therefore we solve these equations by using Galerkin finite element analysis with three noded triangular elements. The temperature, concentration and angular velocity distributions are analyzed for different values of G, R, D-1, P, Sc, γ, α, λ and N. The rate of heat and mass transfer and couple stress evaluated numerically for a different parametric values.
