Abstract


In this paper, the situation of Mixed Convective Flow of A Non-Newtonian Fluid with permeable walls by considering the influence of acceleration due to gravity has been examined in detail. It is noticed that, as  Prandtl number increases the temperature also increases. Not much of significant change is observed when the radiation parameter (R) is slightly decreased. However,  a drastic change is seen when the Prandtl number changes considerably along with the radiation parameter (R). Further, it is noticed that, as the radiation parameter (R) increses the temparature in the fluid also increases. However, not much of  significant change is noticed for a small change in the Prandtl number.But, there is a significant change  in the profiles for larger values of Prandtl number (Pr). It is seen that, as we move far away from the lower boundary then the temperature is found to be decreasing. Further, it is observed that, as the radiation parameter (R) increases the temperature of the fluid decreases.
