MHD boundary layer flow and heat transfer along an infinite porous hot horizontal continuous moving plate

Jhankal, Anuj Kumar

Abstract

Analysis is to study the two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) boundary layer flow and heat transfer along an infinite porous hot horizontal continuous moving plate. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into self-similar ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations before being solved analytically. Numerical results for the dimensionless velocity profiles, the temperature profiles, the skin friction coefficient and the Nusselt number are present graphically and discuss briefly for various physical parameters, such as magnetic parameter M, plate velocity α,Prandtl number Pr,Eckert number Ec and heat source/sink parameter S. It has been found that these parameters have significantly effects on the flow and heat transfer.
