Heat Transfer to Pulsatile Slip Flow in a Porous Channel Filled With Porous Media

MA Usman, FA Hammed, SA Onitilo


This paper investigate the effect of slip on the hydromagnetic pulsatile flow through a porous channel filled with saturated porous medium with time dependent boundary condition on the heated wall. Based on the pulsatile flow nature, the dimensionless flow governing equations are resolved to harmonic and non-harmonic parts. Exact solutions are obtained for the temperature and velocity fields. Parametric study of the solutions are conducted and discussed.

Keywords: Pulsatile flow, Navier slip, porous medium, heat transfer, magnetic field, thermal radiation.
