P. MANGATHAI*, CH. SIDHARTHA

Abstract


This paper presents an analysis of the effect of magneto hydrodynamic free convective heat and mass transfer flow past a moving vertical porous plate in the presence of thermal radiation and chemical reaction is analyzed. The governing partial differential equations are reduced to a system of self-similar equations using the similarity transformations. The resultant equations are then solved numerically using the fourth order Runge-Kutta method along with shooting technique. The results are obtained for velocity, temperature, concentration, skin-friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number. The effects of various parameters on flow variables are illustrated graphically, and the physical aspects of the problem are discussed.


Keywords


MHD, Porous medium, Thermal radiation, Heat and mass transfer, chemical reaction.
