Effects of Some Flow Parameters on Unsteady MHD Fluid Flow Past a Moving Vertical Plate Embedded in Porous Medium in the Presence of Hall Current and Rotating System
Asian Research Journal of Mathematics
This paper is on the numerical study of the effects of some flow parameters like Hall current, rotation, thermal diffusion (Soret) and diffusion thermo (Dufour) on unsteady magnetohydrodynamic natural convective heat and mass transfer of a viscous, rotating, electrically conducting and incompressible fluid flow past an impulsively moving vertical plate embedded in porous medium. The fundamental governing dimensionless coupled boundary layer partial differential equations are solved by the
... solved by the method of lines (MOL). Computations are then performed to determine the effects of the governing flow parameters. The results show that an increase in Soret number, Dufour number and Hall current parameter, causes an increase in the primary and secondary velocities of the fluid flow. As rotating parameter increases, the primary velocity of the flow decreases. Similarly, as Dufour and Soret numbers increase, the temperature and concentration profiles of the fluid flow increase. The effects of the flow parameters on primary and secondary velocity, temperature and concentration fields for externally cooling of the plate are shown graphically.
