Heat and mass transfer analysis of casson fluid flow on a permeable riga-plate

Parasuraman, Loganathan ; Krishnamurthy, Deepa


Numerical analysis has been carried out for a casson fluid flow on a riga-plate with temperature dependent thermal conductivity. The physical model which governs the transport properties is solved numerically. This investigation emphasizes the consequence of variable thermal conductivity and electrically conducting magnetic field on the fluid flow. Rate of heat transfer is elevated, while the flow exposed to constructive case of variable thermal conductivity. The flow speed is enhanced for the improved values of modified Hartmann number. Correlation of the results with the similarity solutions declares the accuracy.
