Thermosolutal MHD flow and radiative heat transfer with viscous work and heat source over a vertical porous plate

P Mebine


This paper investigates double diffusive convection MHD flow past a vertical
porous plate in a chemically active fluid with radiative heat transfer in the presence of viscous work and heat source. The resulting nonlinear dimensionless equations are solved by asymptotic analysis technique giving approximate analytic solutions for the steady velocity, temperature and concentration. The parameters involved are used to give pictorial illustrations of the distributions of the flow variables and are discussed. Also the shear stress, heat and mass transfer characteristics in terms of the flux rates at
the plate wall are discussed.
