Subramanyam Reddy, Anala ; Govindarajulu, K ; Anwar Beg, O ; Ramachandra Prasad, V


The heat and mass transfer characteristics along with Cattaneo-Christov heat flux on oscillating hydromagnetic flow of third grade nanofluid through a permeable channel under entropy generation analysis have been examined in this paper. The impacts of chemical reaction, Brownian motion, thermophoresis, Ohmic heating, and radiative heat have also been taken into consideration. The Buongiorno nanofluid model has been utilized for the present analysis.The investigation related to the present study is helpful in biomedical engineering, manufacturing industries as coolants, energy conservation, cancer treatments (like hyperthermia), dynamics of physiological fluids, biomedicines, and nano-drug suspension in pharmaceuticals. The system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs) have been attained and solved by applying the Runge-Kutta 4th order method with the help of shooting process after the execution of the perturbation procedure on nondimensional partial differential equations (PDEs). The results of the present study have been deliberated by plotting graphs for the effects of various non-dimensional parameters on entropy, Bejan number, concentration, velocity, and temperature. The numerical values of heat and mass transfer rates for different physical parameters have been computed.
