Abstract


We analyze the combined influence of thermo-diffusion and radiation absorption effects on unsteady heat and mass transfer flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid over a stretching sheet with thermal radiation, non-uniform heat source/sink and thermophoresis particle deposition. The conservation of mass, momentum, energy and diffusion equations were transformed into a two-point boundary value problem. We employ an extensively validation, highly efficient, variational finite-element method to study the effect of unsteadiness on heat and mass transfer flow past a semi-infinite stretching sheet. The velocity, temperature, mass concentration, Nusselt and Sherwood number have numerically evaluated for different variations.
