• EFFECT OF HEAT GENERATION AND RADIATION ON MHD BOUNDARY LAYER FLOW IN A POROUS VERTICAL FLAT PLATE

B. Rushi Kumar*

Abstract


In this paper, the effect of heat generation and radiation parameters on momentum, heat and mass transfer flow in a porous vertical flat plate in the presence of a magnetic field has been investigated numerically. By using the similarity transformation, the governing partial differential equations of the problem are transformed to nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Then the numerical solution of the problem is obtained using Shooting method with the fourth order Runge-Kutta integration scheme. The physical behavior of different parameters for velocity, temperature and concentration has been examined graphically and analyzed quantitatively. Comparisons with previously published work are performed and the results are found to be in very good agreement.
